AARP VT will host a Livable Communities Solution Forum to discuss local and state efforts to make Vermont communities more livable and how new tools like the AARP Livability Index:Great Neighborhoods for All Ages can support this work.
As a growing number of Vermonters age, local officials and community organizations are looking for solutions to best support those who want to remain in their homes and neighborhoods. Communities that provide supportive features and services such as affordable and accessible housing, a safe travel environment for drivers and pedestrians, proximity to social activities and economic opportunities, and access to quality health care enhance the quality of life for all residents.
National experts from Smart Growth America, National RTAP, and AARP’s Public Policy Institute, who developed the Livability Index, will lead the discussion. Other presenters will describe how local policies and programs are building livable communities across the state.
