Creating an Age-Friendly Howard County

In December 2019, Howard County Executive Calvin Ball and the Office on Aging and Independence launched the Age-Friendly Howard County Initiative to develop a three- to five-year plan for the county to join AARP's network of age-friendly states and communities affiliated with the World Health Organization (WHO). Achieving this designation requires a focused effort to create a “livable” community which ensures that Howard County is a great place for all to grow up and grow older.

Eight Domain Workgroups

Age-Friendly work groups for each domain of livability, as defined by AARP and the World Health Organization, met throughout 2020. Their strategic planning and work culminated in recommendations for the multi-year action plan that will bring Howard County closer to being an Age-Friendly community. Click below to view meeting agendas and minutes:
