Action Plan Download
Tallahassee developed its action plan to focus on increasing opportunities to make residents aware of the existing services and resources for older adults already available in the community. The plan identifies a number of existing projects, programs, activities, and events that fall under the four primary categories of health and wellness, transportation, housing, and communication awareness and information. The plan identifies a key role for the Tallahassee Senior Center in oversight and monitoring of the age-friendly work, with the success of the plan depending on collaborations between city staff, private and non-profit partners, and older adults.
Action Plan Highlights
Communication and InformationHelp older adults access information on health services, including information on preventive health maintenance and fitness and wellness activities, through a public awareness campaign.
HousingMaintain affordable housing stock by expanding emergency home repair and homeowner rehabilitation programs, and reviewing developer requirements for building affordable housing.
TransportationMake public transportation more accessible for older adults by installing weather enhancements at transit stops like additional shade and rain covers.
