Action Plan Download
Orlando developed its action plan as a blueprint to make Orlando the best city in which to live and age well. The plan will be fully integrated into other community plans including the city master plan, the sustainability action plan, the complete streets policy and the vision zero action plan, among others. The age-friendly initiative considers new ways to create a sense of place for all residents, whether that person is in a wheelchair, pushing a stroller or carrying home grocery bags. The goal is to make the Orlando community a place to live better for longer, and for the city to be more accessible for everyone.
