Action Plan Download
An action plan is based on the results of community surveys identifying needs within the 8 Domains of Livability that influence the health and quality of life of older adults. While there is flexibility in how a plan is created and what it will do, every action plan includes a statement about what can be achieved, target dates for goal completion, identification of participating organizations and indicators to measure progress. The action plan is an "active" rather than static document. Revisions and amendments are a sign of program improvement and progress.
Action Plan Highlights
HousingIncrease the availability of affordable housing through a comprehensive review of the most recent housing plan, and by promoting a diverse mix of hosuing types and providing support for volunteer programs that address housing affordability.

Outdoor SpacesFocus on trail systems by expanding and integrating equestrian, bicycle and hiking trails throughout the county, connecting unincorporated rural communities with downtown, linking the community to larger, nearby cities, and facilitating access to recreational areas.
