Mahnomen County is the least healthy county in Minnesota. The Mahnomen County Resource Group is determined to change this outlook and “protect, promote and improve the health and quality of life in Mahnomen County.” According to the American Academy of Pediatrics Committee on Environmental Health (2009), an environment in which physical activity is prohibitive means that youth inherit a society in which sedentary behavior is the social norm. The City of Mahnomen’s goal is to make the city more pedestrian and bicycle friendly through: newly painted pedestrian crosswalks on Main Street; four “stop for pedestrian” signs placed in intersections on Main Street; a new bicycle rack outside Red Apple Café; a handicap parking sign relocated to remove a barrier in the middle of a sidewalk; and “share the road” signs installed on streets near the school, boys and girls club, and the park.
