The Action Plan outlines more than 50 Action Items, or recommendations, to bring the County closer to being a more inclusive, accessible, safer, and healthier community for people of all ages. It uses the World Health Organization's 8 Domains of Livability as a guide to examine Howard County's infrastructure, services, communications, and ways of working together.
