Action Plan Download
Bowdoinham developed its action plan in collaboration with the town's Advisory Committee On Aging (ACOA). The action plan commits to infrastructure changes, along with new programs and services, designed to be more inclusive of a rapidly aging community. The plan also states that any new municipal programs run by the community will include input from older residents. The plan focuses on using local volunteer groups to do outreach to tackle age-related challenges, and commits to providing all residents with services regardless of their ability to pay.
