Clovis, family, health, HEAL
Over the years, Clovis city officials have gone to great lengths to build a city to serve a variety of residents. The efforts have paid off. People from all walks of life make Clovis their home.
Not too many years ago, Clovis primarily was known as a community for young families. That remains true today. Many young couples eager to set down roots still select their first home in Clovis. But as those families – young a few years back – age, they’ve decided to stay put in Clovis, too. And so Clovis is home to families with older children as well as families experiencing the empty-nest syndrome. Seniors and young, single adults find their niche here, too. A wide selection of mobile home parks and apartment complexes offer a variety of housing options.
In all housing selections, there are varieties in price ranges, too. Working-class families to seniors on fixed incomes to professional, double-income families settle here. There are choices in lot sizes, ranging from large acreage, larger-estate lots, to conventional single-family parcels and townhouses and condominiums.
And so Clovis, where there are plans for the future, has something for everyone.

The City of Clovis has been proclaimed a Healthy Eating Active Living (HEAL) city. The Healthy Eating Active Living Cities Campaign provides training and technical assistance to help city officials adopt policies that improve their communities’ physical activity and retail food environments. Supporting healthy choices is essential to address the obesity epidemic among California’s children and adults, currently costing the state more than $41 billion annually in healthcare and lost productivity. So far, 110 California cities have joined the Campaign by adopting a resolution and/or policy.
The Healthy Eating Active Living Cities Campaign is promoting a menu of policy options that city leaders can adopt to improve their cities’ nutrition and physical activity environments. A survey of more than 150 city officials in 100 cities directed the Campaign to focus on policies in the areas of land use, food and physical activity, and employee wellness.
