WCA Member Celeste Roeller Harp will lead a discussion on

"Age Friendly: Creating Communities That Work for Everyone."

Our presenter will discuss what Age Friendly/Livable Communities are, what steps we can take to become one, and how they make communities better for all age groups.

As Governor Cuomo has found out, “... Millennials and Empty Nesters both seek the same kinds of features in their communities: robust downtowns where they can gather socially and find employment, accessible public transportation options, homes located near train stations, and walkable neighborhoods”, and he aims to make New York the first Age Friendly State in the nation.
