Grand Rapids: What makes an age-friendly community?

Grand Rapids Age Friendly logo

The City of Grand Rapids is building a master plan to become a Livable Community through AARP’s Network of Age Friendly Communities.

This fall, AARP Michigan and the City of Grand Rapids are hosting “Community Conversations” to find out what you’d like to see in your neighborhood to make it age friendly for people of ALL ages. Several of these events were held earlier this month.
