AARP Livable CommunitiesBest practices, strategies, research and more
Making a community more livable can require an expansive infrastructure project, such as turning abandoned railroad beds into an urban park. Or, the solutions can also be very small and specific, such as ensuring that people who live alone can get help in an emergency. Other efforts are just fun, like the "lawn chair" (pictured) that was landscaped for a local arts festival.
