Does your community engage in planning and other activities to meet the needs of residents across all age groups? Has practice improved in the last decade?
ICMA and Cornell are reprising a national study on the extent to which local governments engage in planning and other activities to meet the needs of residents across all age groups – especially seniors and families with children. Results will provide insights into how local governments can promote more livable communities for all residents.
Every city and county in the US received the paper copy of the survey in mid May. It is divided into 3 sections: planning and participation, services, and values and attitudes. We estimate the survey will take 20 minutes to complete.
We encourage all cities and counties to fill out and return the survey as this will provide us with a view across the nation. If you would like to fill out the survey for your community, please use the link https://icma.org/planforallages
There will be a report on results of the survey at the 2020 National Planning Conference in Houston.
