Hallandale Beach developed its action plan to address the mobility, housing, social and economic conditions that affect older adults in the community. The plan is designed to focus on improving livability for older residents and promoting aging in place through the four main focus areas of creating attractive and safe neighborhoods; fostering health and well-being for all residents; building better transportation systems that promote mobility and accessibility; and establishing a more welcoming community.
Action Plan Highlights
TransportationMeet the transportation needs of older adults by promoting multimodal transportation services like mini bus systems, sharing information related to public transit ridership, safety, attractiveness and benefits through maps, flyers, tutorials, and educating older residents on real-time transit mobile tracking apps.
Outdoor SpacesPromote the accessibility of neighborhoods to parks, open spaces, and public places by building better sidewalk connectivity and bike lanes, and also providing greater opportunities for more walkable, bikeable and transit-supported complete streets with mixed use developments. Provide age-friendly activities and programming at neighborhood parks.
HousingPromote awareness of the importance of universal design elements in the construction of new housing developments and in the renovations of existing rental and owner-occupied units.
