Communities in Action Strategic Plan & Action Groups
Richland County Communities in Action has been in place for over a decade, working through Action Groups to address community needs and build a healthy community.

Richland County Communities in Action began to unite community efforts and to increase the quality of life in Richland County. This program and its Action Groups envision Richland County as being a healthy, clean and safe place for families and individuals to grow. 

The people who make up these action groups come from diverse backgrounds all working together on a shared goal. New members are always welcome.

About the Quality of Life Strategic Plan 
In 2006, the Richland County Health Department, in collaboration with the City/County Planning Board and other local agencies, created a process to assess conditions in Richland County that impact quality of life and potential for economic growth. This resulted in the development of a Community Strategic Plan (CSP) which was reviewed and updated at the "State of the Community" county-wide conference over the past five years. To help achieve the goals and vision laid out in the CSP, the Health Department and other local government agencies and non-profits hosted AmeriCorps*VISTA volunteers who helped the community form action groups around identified focus areas of: Housing, Life Long Learning, Physical Activity, Youth Opportunities, Senior Health, Health Education/Chronic Disease, Natural Resources, Recycling, Injury Prevention and Public Safety. 

Currently, community leaders including elected officials and representatives from key agencies work as a steering committee that guides the process and with the changing landscape of Richland County this year's conference will be different.
