Do you have ideas on how to make Southern New Hampshire communities more age friendly for all members? AARP is collaborating with The Southern New Hampshire Planning Commission (SNHPC) to work on just that, as part of a “Becoming Age-Friendly” program.
The concept of an age-friendly community is in part about adopting such features as:
· Safe, walk-able streets
· More housing and transportation options
· Access to key services
· Opportunities for residents to participate in community activities
So how can you have your voice heard? Fill out a quick survey being hosted by SNHPC and sponsored by AARP, Tufts Health Plan Foundation, and the City of Manchester by April 15. Voices of all ages are encouraged to participate, so spread the word to family and friends!
You can also attend an upcoming focus group based on the community you live in! There is no registration required for these events, and all community members are welcome.
Here are the event details:
