The towns of Greenfield, Montague and Orange make up Mass in Motion's Franklin County Coalition. Together, they are enrolling schools in a Safe Routes to School program to create safe ways for kids to walk and bike to school, and connecting schools to nearby farms for local food purchasing and serving as a model for other towns in Franklin County. Franklin County is currently completing walkability and bikeability assessments, and is establishing a Healthy Markets Program to work with local store owners to help them offer healthier food and drink options. They are also working closely with the Franklin County Planning Commission to include health in all planning decisions.
