Age-Friendly Livability Survey
If you haven't yet had the opportunity to share your opinion on how livable and age-friendly DC is today, please take a few moments to complete our Livability Survey. Paper copies are also available at all library branches and the survey is available in a number of languages other than English.
Age-Friendly DC Presentations
Age-Friendly DC staff and volunteers will be enaging communities across the city throughout November and December with presentations at local library branches. A list of dates and locations for these presentations will be posted shortly.
Age-Friendly DC Block-by-Block Walk
Between March and September of 2014, 104 of 296 Single Member Districts (SMDs) were surveyed regarding walkability, neighborhood amenities, and specific concerns. During the spring Walks, hundreds of volunteers took to the streets of DC to identify neighborhood assets and issues needing attention all through the lens of DC residents 60 and older. When the data from all the Walk areas is combined, it will help the city improve policy and practice to make daily life better for those who live, work or visit.
There are SMDs that still need to be surveyed. Learn how you can help.
