Action Plan Download
Westwood developed their action plan in collaboration with Westwood for All Ages, a partnership organization that seeks to create "a place where all people can live well and thrive even as they age, and to engage older adults in the advocacy for and planning of services and programs that will facilitate more successful aging in place." Westwood will promote and expand programs and policies that support affordable property maintenance and home repair, helping residents age in place. The plan also aims to help Westwood offer a range of flexible transportation options, enhance the availability of information, and create linkages to community resources and services.
