ARC’s Community Planning Academy Presents: Lifelong Communities – Integrating Transportation Options for Older Adults

The Community Planning Academy (CPA) offers high-quality, cost-effective training and workshops to appointed citizen planners, local elected officials and local government employees. CPA provides planners and decision makers with tools to make effective decisions regarding their community’s future.

A Lifelong Community is a community where individuals can live throughout their lifetime. They provide a full range of options to residents, ensuring a high quality of life for all. Lifelong mobility and accessibility provides access and transportation to people of all ages and abilities. Real mobility begins inside the home and carries throughout the entire built environment. So how do we build on the framework of current development patterns to ensure older adults have access to critical goods and services?

This workshop will examine several key components of Lifelong Communities from a transportation standpoint. These principles, and how they are employed by local governments today, will provide participants with ideas and resources to make their communities more livable for all residents.
