Chemung County developed its action plan in collaboration with the Chemung County Age-Friendly Community Planning Committee. The plan focuses on creating accessible outdoor spaces and promoting recreational activity, improving transit, and creating access to public and private transportation options that are safe and pedestrian-friendly. The plan also commits to increasing the affordable housing stock and creating options for residents who want to age in place.
Action Plan Highlights
Outdoor SpacesGive older adults a greater voice in planning new outdoor spaces by opening channels of communication between residents and planning organizations.
TransportationImprove coordination of medical transportation through a new workgroup comprised of representatives from transit, health, and aging services agencies.
Social ParticipationAccommodate older adults who are unable to leave their homes, yet want to participate in social activities, through a "Senior Center Without Walls" program.
