Eight local communities (Federal Way, Kent, SeaTac, Tukwila, White Center, Seattle:Delridge/West Seattle, Seattle: Central Area, and Seattle: Beacon Hill/SE Seattle) wereidentified as potential focus sites based on:
size (fewer than 120,000 residents) and
levels of obesity and related chronic diseases, poor diet, and physical inactivity.White Center and Delridge were selected as the two focus communities based on theirdemonstrated ability to work collaboratively and their plan to engage diverse residentsand community-based organizations
