New Jersey Future Resources Highlighted at National Planners’ Convention

May 1st, 2018 by

Palmer Square in Princeton. The town is the first in New Jersey to receive the World Health Organization’s Age-Friendly designation.

Several resources developed for New Jersey Future’s work on Creating Great Places To Age were featured at the recent National Planning Conference, the annual convention of the American Planning Association.

At the De-Siloing Age-Friendly Planning Solutions session, a series of best-practice tools and processes were highlighted, including the work New Jersey Future is doing with several communities to evaluate their aging-friendliness and identify opportunities to become more accommodating to older residents. Presenters highlighted the process New Jersey Future has developed and the documents created to support that process, including a letter of agreement that defines the study work scope, establishes a point of contact, and lists the responsibilities of the municipality and project team; draft language for a municipal resolution in support of undertaking a study; and an introductory meeting packet that includes a proposed composition for the municipality’s project steering committee.
