Keep Council Bluffs Beautiful merges with Live Well Council Bluffs

In April 2013, the Keep Council Bluffs Beautiful Board of Directors voted to merge with Live Well Council Bluffs thereby expanding our mission to now encompass: healthy eating, active living and beautification. The Keep Council Bluffs Beautiful brand will still exist functioning as programs within Live Well Council Bluffs. The organization's new mission is to create healthy people and healthy places. We will work to bring the community together to collectively implement strategies that improve access to nutritious foods, increase opportunities for physical activity, create pedestrian and bicycle friendly streets that promote clean neighborhoods and parks.
