Creating Great Places to Age in New Jersey

Land use can help determine how livable, walkable and accessible a community is, especially for residents aged 55 and older. Throughout our state, communities are exploring land use considerations as a strategy for ensuring that older residents can continue to live and thrive independently in the neighborhoods they know and love. Creating Places To Age: A Community Guide to Implementing Aging-Friendly Land Use Decisions provides both residents and local representatives, such as members of municipal councils or land use boards, with an action plan, guidance and considerations for implementing aging-friendly land use practices at the municipal level. Developed by New Jersey Future, this resource offers a step-by-step, inclusive process to make it easier to design for the needs of older residents.
