Age-Friendly Initiative Planning Meeting in #SalemOr – Now! Wed. Nov. 8th

On Wednesday, November 8, from 2–4 p.m. at Center 50+, the City will host a panel discussion on Transportation and Connectivity for Salem’s older adults. This will be the first in a series of meetings discussing livability in Salem.

Residents are encouraged to attend and participate.

The Salem City Council made a commitment to make our city a great place for people of all ages. Center 50+ accepted the World Health Organization’s challenge to develop an action plan to establish Salem as an Age-Friendly Community. Created in June 2005, the World Health Organization’s Age-Friendly Community program helps communities prepare for a rapidly aging population and give increased attention to the environmental, economic, and social factors that influence the health and well-being of older adults. By doing so, these communities will be better equipped to meet resident’s needs, regardless of their age.
