SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -

Four people in Sioux City are feeling blue, but that's a good thing.

Wednesday, the city announced the creation of the community's Blue Zones team.

The team of four will be responsible for putting in place programs to help make Sioux City become a certified Blue Zones Community.

The group is still moving into their new office space on the 3rd floor of City Hall.

They'll be working together to promote well-being within the community through business engagement and policy making.

"It's been a long year and a half, it's been a lot of fun, frustrating at times, but this is the really exciting part where we actually get to go out and engage people and do something we've been talking about," Sue Brown, Blue Zones Community Program Manager.

Brown says the group will be working hard to become certified over the course of the next 36 months.
