Berwick developed its action plan by focusing on the top issues raised during the community survey process which were housing, transportation, and communication. Efforts in Berwick are aimed at creating a safe, walkable village center that supports businesses and increases opportunities for recreation and community events for people of all ages. The plan specifically targets downtown revitalization and partnerships with key stakeholders, like the police and the local library, as the key to making Berwick a truly age-friendly community.
