Joint Use Agreements Promote Active Communities

Developing model policies to promote active community environments is one of the priority recommendations in the Washington State Nutrition and Physical Activity Plan.

Several communities in Washington have set up interlocal agreements or made provisions in their comprehensive plans to promote active community environments. The agreements cover park use, facility use, and creation of walking and biking trails.

Examples of joint use agreements and success stories from communities across the state have been collected and made available in the Municipal Research and Services Center of Washington's Web-based document library:

Intergovernmental agreements, private contracting

Bicycle facilities, paths
