Action Plan Download
Manitou Springs developed its action plan with the goal of supporting age-friendly projects and keeping the needs of older adults top of mind as community projects are planned and executed. As part of a regional age-friendly initiative, Manitou Springs is now able to access a great range of local, state and federal resources and is working on a countywide approach to livability and especially issues related to older adults. By becoming an active member of this regional age-friendly group, Manitou Springs is able to work on broader transportation, housing and policy issues that span the greater southern Colorado region.
