In an effort to make communities more livable for its members (and everyone), AARP released a helpful set of Livability Fact Sheets to help illustrate what makes a place work for people of all ages. 

There are 11 fact sheets, each four pages long, covering topics such as bicycling, traffic calming, sidewalks, economic development and more.

You can view or download the free fact sheets here

The factsheets were created by AARP Livable Communities and the Walkable and Livable Communities Institute.

AARP hopes the fact sheets will be used by community leaders, lawmakers, activists and any community members interested in transforming their communities.
