Active Community Plans
Lisbon is leading the way for Maine communities to be healthier and more vibrant places, through the organization of the Lisbon Active Community Team. Getting people walking will lead to improved facilities, decrease air pollution and traffic congestion, improve physical health, and other benefits.
The Active Community Team is working with a group of Lisbon Falls downtown business to promote the health of employees through formation of a Wellness Council.
