Action Plan Download
Coamo developed its action plan through community surveys and a key leadership team comprised of municipal staff, an advisory council and key stakeholder groups and organizations. It is designed taking into consideration that planning for older adults improves the lives of all generations. The seven areas represented in the plan include different topics, but some overlap highlighting opportunities for collaboration and alliances. The action plan includes a focus on quality of life, health, wellbeing, and intergenerational contact, all from the perspective of our community life.
