AGE-FRIENDLY PRINCETON
You may recall that two years ago PSRC facilitated Princeton’s being designated by the World Health Organization and AARP as an “age-friendly community.” We are proud to be the first in New Jersey, and to join 92 other communities across the U.S. as well as hundreds worldwide that are making a commitment to ensuring that our communities are great places to live throughout the lifespan. We’ve just achieved the second milestone in this process, compiling a report on the findings from focus groups and a plan for making improvements. The task group identified three priority areas: housing, transportation, and communications. Many people are concerned that they can’t afford to live in Princeton, and that there isn’t sufficient affordable housing convenient to town amenities. They are also concerned about how to navigate around town when they can no longer drive. All discussions revealed that many residents are not familiar with existing resources or where to find them, and that there are currently many formats for communicating information but no clear single path. The final goal identified is to support being a multi-generational community by strengthening neighborhood groups. Many of the strategies connect with projects already underway in Princeton. The report has been accepted by the Princeton Council and you may read the plan in its entirety by clicking here.
