The City of Oceanside became the first Live Well San Diego partner on May 2, 2012, by formally embracing Live Well San Diego’s principles as a guide to promote healthy living throughout the city and launching the Healthy Oceanside Initiative. Oceanside adopted a Bicycle Master Plan, for which it was awarded bronze level designation for a Bike Friendly Community by the League of American Bicyclists. Oceanside promotes cycling and bicycle safety through its partnerships with the San Diego County Bicycle Coalition, the League of American Bicyclists and residents on the Oceanside Bicycle Committee. In addition to planning for bicycles, Oceanside is promoting walking for health by adopting a Pedestrian Master Plan. Oceanside was also the pilot site for the Resident Leadership Academy to empower community members to improve the quality of life in neighborhoods and promote physical activity and healthy food choices, with funding from a Healthy Works grant.
