Monett Main Street

Monett is looking to its residents for ideas on how to make its downtown area a healthier place.  A two-day session this week is focusing on what priorities are most important for the community.

The event, today and tomorrow (10/17-10/18) is part of a Healthy Places for Healthy People grant from the US Environmental Protection Agency.  It focuses on improving access to healthcare, promoting healthier lifestyles, increasing physical activity and attracting more investment to the city’s neighborhoods and downtown area.  Cox Monett Hospital is leading the local project.
