Fayette welcomed the Equitable Neighborhoods Initiative (ENI) on September 7, 2023. The community of 4,185 residents in Fayette County is one of twenty across the state participating in ENI. The program will equip neighbors and community partners to address the pandemic-related issues of today while building capacity to deal with the health and quality of life challenges of tomorrow.
Fayette City Hall hosted the lively ENI kickoff celebration. Several local leaders, citizens, and ENI representatives gathered for the event. The kickoff featured welcome remarks, a motivational message, and refreshments.
“It is with great excitement that we welcome ENI to the Fayette community. The excitement gives way to the promise of a healthier future. We believe that we have the authority to determine the quality of our lives. We have been challenged and encouraged by Dr. Earl to be active in our pursuit to obtain and sustain a healthy lifestyle, both physically and mentally,” said Brittina R. Moore, Fayette Community Liaison.
Fayette residents will join ENI’s Fayette Advisory Group and Youth Community Council. Together, the groups will work to improve health outcomes for their town. Among other projects, they will draft a health equity plan. They will also create a “healing zone” in the community. “Healing zones” are natural and recreational spaces for improving physical and mental health.
“We are proud to be partnering with the vibrant city of Fayette. It’s clear the people of Fayette care about their community, and we are excited to work with them toward a healthier tomorrow,” said ENI Project Leader Dr. Arturo Menefee.
Dr. Earl Suttle of Leadership Success International fired up Fayette residents in attendance. His motivational message encouraged Fayette residents to “master stress for better success.” His remarks aimed to empower residents to strengthen their physical and mental health.
