Baltimore County is seeking community input on making Baltimore County more age-friendly to empower residents of all ages and abilities to live, work, play and reside comfortably in their communities.

“An age-friendly Baltimore County is one where all residents feel welcome and can take comfort in knowing that their concerns are being heard and their needs are being met,” said County Executive Johnny Olszewski.

About the Age-Friendly Baltimore County Initiative

County Executive Olszewski and the Baltimore County Department of Aging earlier this year launched the Age-Friendly Baltimore County initiative in partnership with the AARP network of Age-Friendly states and communities. The network is the United States affiliate of the World Health Organization’s (WHO) Age-Friendly Cities and Communities Program, an international effort launched in 2006 to help cities prepare for rapid population aging and the parallel trend of urbanization.

The Age-Friendly Baltimore County initiative is examining issues such as affordable and accessible housing; creating open and accessible green spaces; accessible public transportation options and ways to create more opportunities for civic engagement and employment.

To fill out the survey, visit the questionnaire on SurveyMonkey.
