Healthy communities

market sign on sidewalkFeatures of a community either contribute to or decrease one's ability to live independently, safely and comfortably. 

Well-planned communities offer plenty of housing choices and nearby services so we, relatives and friends do not have to leave behind the people and places we know and love as we age and our circumstances change. 

The task force identified four key areas that are essential in achieving healthy communities. 

  1. Complete neighborhoods
  2. Access to parks, recreation and open space
  3. Access to healthful food
  4. Access to information
