City of Lincoln Joins the AARP Network of Age-Friendly States and Communities with Survey for Residents


On behalf of the 180,000 AARP members across the state of Nebraska, the AARP team would like to congratulate Mayor Leirion Gaylor Baird and the City of Lincoln on its enrollment in the AARP Network of Age-Friendly States and Communities.

As part of this effort, residents in the city of Lincoln are invited to complete the age-friendly community survey.

The Network was created in 2012 and now includes 846 communities nationwide who are dedicated to an ongoing process to make themselves more livable and age-friendly.

In a recent AARP Livability Index™ report, Lincoln was ranked number one for livability in the state and number eleven in the nation for large communities looking at categories such as housing, transportation, health status, and community engagement.

Empowering people to choose how they live as they age has been central to AARP's mission for over 65 years. To do this, we know individuals need access to livable communities with safe and walkable streets, affordable and age-appropriate housing options, access to parks and green spaces, and opportunities for social connection and civic engagement.

The good news is—what makes a community age-friendly, also makes it a better place for people of all ages to live.

Lincoln residents, we want to hear from you. Complete the Lincoln age-friendly community survey today!
