Watch the COA Delegation at the City’s Planning and Housing Committee during Budget Deliberations

On Wednesday, February 15, 2023, Valerie Wright, member of the COA’s Age-Friendly Housing Committee presented two recommendations for consideration for the City’s Draft Operating and Capital Budget:

  1. increase the range of age-friendly housing options that are both deeply affordable and accessible, that provide access to services, and that allow older adults to age in place and community.
  2. encourage and invest in innovative building models that incorporate age-friendly design that encourages connections and relationships across a range of ages, income levels, and backgrounds and helps to meet housing needs across a person’s lifespan.
