New Active RVA certification recipient to be announced May 17

Active RVA, a program of Sports Backers, has announced the addition of a development certification to the Active RVA Awards.

The Active RVA Certification and Awards program highlights and recognizes organizations throughout the Richmond region that create a culture of daily physical activity and encourage active lifestyles. Certifications for cevelopment and early childhood education are new in 2017, and they join workplaces and schools as areas that can be Active RVA-certified for supporting physical activity.

As part of the development certification, planned commercial, residential, or multi-use communities can become Active RVA-certified if they include criteria that demonstrate a commitment to physical activity in their design details. Criteria are evaluated along five fundamental areas: space, connectivity, signage, amenities, and buildings. The criteria were created by Active RVA together with a team of experts representing City of Richmond’s Regional Planning District Commission, Alta Planning, Bike Walk RVA, Cite Design, the Virginia Department of Health, HHHunt and Chesterfield County.

The first recipient of the Active RVA development certification will be announced at the Active RVA Awards May 17. The Active RVA Awards ceremony will take place in conjunction with the inaugural Movement Makers: The National Active Living Summit and Dominion Riverrock.
