Age-Friendly Macon-Bibb is celebrating their milestone of continuous improvements as indicated by the AARP Network of Age-Friendly Communities. Their designation as the country's first Age-Friendly Community was approved in 2012 by the World Health Organization and AARP. This network serves as a catalyst to educate, encourage, promote and recognize improvements that make communities supportive for residents of all ages. The network provides U.S. cities, towns, and counties with the resources to become more Age-Friendly by tapping into national and global research, planning models, and best practices.
Macon-Bibb County becomes the first community to receive a five-year renewal as part of the worldwide network of Age-Friendly Communities. Tomorrow, AARP will acknowledge Macon-Bibb’s commitment and its multi-year plan to enhance accessibility, convenience, and, ultimately, become more user-friendly for all ages.
