Action Plan Download
Saco developed its action plan around the goal of enabling people of all ages to actively participate in community activities. The underlying premise of the plan is that everyone should be treated with respect, regardless of age. The plan calls on Saco to develop outdoor spaces and provide greater communication of its services to older residents. Additionally, Saco's plan ensures that home repairs are accessible and transit is affordable for all residents.
Action Plan Highlights
TransportationBroaden access to transportation for older adults and add new, alternative transportation options like a "shopping shuttle" and ride sharing.
Outdoor SpacesImprove beach access for older adults by adding more wheelchair and walker accessibility.
