Upcoming Age-Friendly DC Progress Report Information Sessions

The DC Comprehensive Plan is a 20-year, Mayor and Council-approved vision that was first adopted as legislation in 2006. The Plan was amended in 2011. The second amendment cycle launched in 2016 with the theme “Planning an Inclusive City.”

Age-Friendly DC has presented these additions to the DC Office of Planning. These proposed amendments are consistent with the aims, goals and strategies in the Age-Friendly DC 2012-2017 Strategic Plan. Each relevant domain Task Force Committee is reviewing the Age-Friendly DC proposed amendments. Come to any and all of the July Task Force Committee meetings that interest you and participate in the discussions. Below you will see the next steps in the DC Office of Planning Comprehensive Plan Amendment process:

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.
