Representatives of new Blue Zones Project approved entities gather at City Hall on Dec. 4 to be recognized by the City Council.

After widespread community collaboration and a five-year push to make healthy choices easier, Fort Worth has achieved certification as a Blue Zones Community, the biggest in the country. The designation means the city has made significant changes to help residents live longer, better lives.

“We’ve seen real, positive change through Blue Zones Project,” said Mayor Betsy Price. “More than ever, Fort Worth is a vibrant place where people want to live and companies want to do business.”

The well-being initiative will end the year with support from more than 88,500 people and more than 330 organizations, including 134 worksites; 66 restaurants, 20 grocery stores, 46 schools, 16 faith-based communities and 56 neighborhoods and community organizations.

Those that became Blue Zones Project approved this fall were recognized at the Dec. 4 City Council meeting. Blue Zones Project leaders and team members were also recognized.
