The City of Westerville has launched an Age-Friendly Initiative to learn how local government and residents can work together to keep our community a great place for all residents to live, work, play and retire.
Were you one of 1,200 people asked to complete the Age-Friendly Initiative Survey? Please remember to complete and return your thoughts by Sept. 30.
The anonymous survey is designed to collect information about eight aspects of an Age-Friendly Community. The surveys were sent at the end of July and to be statistically accurate, we sent them to 1,200 randomly selected residents, ages 55 and over. The City needs at least 370 completed surveys to generate the data needed for future plans.
Results of the survey will help identify strengths and weaknesses in the community and will be utilized in the Westerville Age-Friendly Plan.
Community Focus Groups
Thank you to all who were able to attend the community focus group events in August. City staff conducted a series of three focus group meetings with residents to engage in a dialogue beyond the “yes/no” answers of the survey. Check back for updates about future events for this initiative.
