Lead Agency: Age-Friendly Maple Grove
Action Plan Download
Maple Grove developed its action plan in collaboration with a large group of stakeholders, partnering with city department heads and other key staff to discuss the work of each department through an age-friendly lens. The plan reflects the need to balance reasonable, shorter-term strategies and thoughtful, longer-term strategies. As a result, the action plan commits to incorporating dementia-friendly park features and exercise equipment in parks; expanding pedestrian safety and accessibility; integrating age-friendly priorities in the planning process for housing; and improving nutrition efforts for older adults.
Action Plan Highlights
Outdoor SpacesMake parks more dementia-friendly and install public exercise equipment.
TransportationSupport pedestrian safety while encouraging active transportation options like walking and biking.
HousingIncrease the supply of housing for older adults by expanding zoning to allow ADUs and creating more residential home care options.
