The City Commission created the Senior Services | Aging in Place Task Force to advise the city on issues pertaining to seniors.
The task force applied to join the AARP's Age-Friendly Network and began collecting data from residents on what they wanted from senior services and programs.
Just as the task force was getting ready to move forward with next steps the pandemic happened. The task force was put on pause through early 2021.
The task force got back to work after taking a pause through the first year of the pandemic. This year they focused on reviewing the data and re-establishing the direction of the task force.
In 2022 the task force brought together working groups that helped to define goals and actions that the city could work toward across six different topics. After sharing the draft plan and accepting public comment the city commission approved it in December 2022. The AARP also approved the plan and renewed us as members of the Livable Communities Network.
