Action Plan Download
Alexandria developed its action plan around three mission-driven categories. The plan focuses on promoting physical wellbeing throughout a lifetime, with optimal access to healthcare in its various forms and affordability; working with community partners to provide products and services that foster safe and livable homes and communities, and that help people of all ages achieve the strength, stability and self-reliance they need to build better lives for themselves; and to expand transportation services and options, as well as to increase the overall transit demand, capacity, accessibility, affordability, reliability and efficiency.
Action Plan Highlights
Health and Community ServicesCreate a home visitation program comprised of trained volunteers who can follow up with patients who have been released from the hospital, helping prevent hospital readmission.
TransportationShare safety information with older drivers and their families by designing and implementing a targeted public service campaign.
