Action Plan Download
Princeton developed its action plan by first developing a baseline study and survey for its community, cataloguing existing initiatives that contribute to the quality of life for Princeton's older residents and helping focus the plan on transportation, communications and information, and strengthening a multi-generational community. Princeton aims to increase housing stock and housing options by changing zoning restrictions, enhance transportation access for seniors who no longer want to drive, and develop new systems to keep older residents aware of updates in their community. n
Action Plan Highlights
HousingCreate new, affordable housing options for older adults like co-housing, granny flats, and higher density neighborhoods.
TransportationIncrease options for biking and walking through a new bicycle master plan, expanded bike share programs, and improved crosswalks.
CommunicationsBuild technological literacy among older adults by providing low-cost computer classes and access to computers.
