The formula for what makes a community livable isn't particularly complex. For the most part, the features and needs are fairly simple.

But living in a place that, say, requires having a car for every errand or outing can be a difficult place to live if you don't have a car or can't drive.

Living in a place without access to outdoor spaces, good schools and healthy food isn't very livable, especially for young families.

Living in a community that isn't safe, or offers few activities, can be isolating for people regardless of age.

On the other hand, a community that includes all of the features pictured in our "In a Livable Community" handout can be great — for people of all ages!
