Presque Isles developed its action plan in conjunction with local stakeholder groups. The initiative focuses on eight domains of livability, concentrating on three specific areas of impact--Outdoor Spaces and Public Buildings, Civic Participation, and Transportation.
Action Plan Highlights
Outdoor SpacesImprove safety downtown for pedestrians, bicycles, strollers and wheelchairs by repairing sidewalks and crosswalks.
Civic Participation and EmploymentIncrease access to information on local activities, and create a "social buddies" program to give older adults a companion for attending events.
TransportationImprove local bus systems, based on suggestions from riders, to better serve older residents.
