Redwood City developed its action plan by conducting resident focus groups and evaluating current city policies and programs. The initiative aims to focus on updating resource guides for older adults, addresses the older adult unhoused populations, evaluating community transportation systems and coordinating with neighborhood communities to expand services for aging populations. Redwood City also plans to create a new gathering and activity space for older adults.
Action Plan Highlights
Communication and InformationCreate a new, updated resource guide for older adults that includes topics like housing options, new methods of transportation, healthcare services, and veterans' services.
Social ParticipationBuild out a new, multigenerational space that will expand the existing network of recreational and health-promoting resources, meeting the demands of a growing community.
Respect and InclusionCombat discrimination and ageism by connecting community boards--including those focused on youth, teens and older adults.
