It’s been a decade since Macon-Bibb County became the nation’s first community designated “age friendly” in AARP’s Network of Age-Friendly States and Communities. Since then, 99 more cities, counties and communities in the Peach State have joined, pledging to become places that are welcoming and livable for people of all ages.
