BACKGROUND AND ANALYSIS

In March 2016, pursuant to Resolution No. 16-10, the Town proudly became the first municipality in South Florida to join the AARP Network of Age-Friendly Communities (the "Network"). The Network is an affiliate of the World Health Organization's Age-Friendly Cities and Communities Program, an international effort launched in 2006 to help cities prepare for rapid population aging and the parallel trend of urbanization. As a member of the Network, the Town was required to develop a three (3) year action plan that is approved by the AARP and the World Health Organization by 2018.

The purpose of the action plan is to identify opportunities to integrate age-friendly principles into all aspects of the Town's planning and service delivery. Town Staff, in collaboration with our Communities for a Lifetime ("CFAL") Committee and the Town Manager as the CFAL Committee Liaison, hosted monthly public meetings, reviewed the Town's Senior Needs Assessment and Strategic Master Plan, and worked in coalition with the Miami-Dade Age-Friendly Initiative to collect additional survey data which was used to develop the Age-Friendly Action Plan 2018-2021 ("Plan").
