Action Plan Download
West Sacramento and its city council developed their action plan to provide a framework for action items that benefit the older population, and by extension, all residents. The plan is designed to facilitate a long-term paradigm shift at all levels of the decision-making process, viewing all city activities through the lens of age-friendliness. The plan contains 20 implementation items that span multiple domains of livability, from the built environment, to transportation and housing, to social services like health care and access to information.
