2016 Healthy Hometown - Magee Grant Awarded: $25,000

As a result of making wellness a top priority, the City of Magee received a Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Mississippi Foundation Healthy Hometown Award in 2016. Led by Mayor Jimmy Clyde, the city is turning its goal of becoming a healthy community into a reality by adopting a comprehensive smoke-free ordinance that also prohibits the use of electronic smoking devices. The use of tobacco products and electronic smoking devices is also prohibited in all hospitals and clinics located in the municipality. The Living Well in Magee Committee was established in 2011 to promote community healthy living. As a result of the committee’s work, residents have opportunities to engage in walking clubs, weight management programs and free health screenings. Magee adopted a helmet ordinance for adults and children and designated neighborhood walking and biking lanes. The city recently renovated a vacant building and equipped it with cardiovascular and strength training equipment. The facility, including an adjacent walking and biking trail, is available to all city employees and their families at no cost. City leaders state that this benefit represents a significant cost-savings to employees and the city as it reduces employee absenteeism and the cost of health care. The Mayor’s Marathon challenges business leaders and students to walk 26.2 miles each month, and the mayor writes a weekly newspaper column encouraging residents to utilize city parks, public green spaces, walking trails and the many farmers’ markets located throughout the city. The Scrub Run 5K and the Magee Chamber of Commerce Crazy Day 5K provide families with opportunities to participate together in fun fitness activities. Magee’s community garden is located near the farmers’ market in the historic downtown area. The garden includes raised beds for planting and harvesting fresh fruits and vegetables. The raised garden beds provide comfortable gardening levels for all residents, including senior adults and children. Healthy nutrition is one of the overall written strategic goals of the Simpson County School District. Magee school administrators and faculty members partner to promote learning environments focused on healthy eating and physical activity, which are essential for high academic achievement. The school district is aligned with the 2007 Healthy Students Act and engages in shared use activities with the municipality. Plans for the $25,000 grant award include lengthening the walking trail, renovating the existing outdoor playground and exercise equipment, and upgrading the exercise equipment in the city employee fitness center.
