MWV Age Friendly Action Plan receives 2019 Plan of the Year Award from the NH Planning Association

Our Mission: Using the AARP Livable Community Framework, we combine the talents and resources from all of our 11 towns to further develop the Mount Washington Valley as a place for people of all ages and abilities to thrive.

Our Vision: Citizens of all ages can say they would rather live here than anywhere else.

Executive Summary: The Mount Washington Valley of New Hampshire is a culturally and historically rich, natural region for designation as an Age-Friendly Community. With its rapidly aging population, many of whom are lifelong outdoor enthusiasts, its plentiful service organizations, and talented citizenry, we have the opportunity to rapidly build a dynamic Age-Friendly Community that will make needed improvements while raising awareness of what an Age-Friendly Community truly feels like.

On completion of this Action Plan, our Steering Committee and its member Working Groups are ready to stride forward with their commitments to the first set of selected SMART goals. This first step will connect our members to the AARP Livable Communities resources and guides, helping them understand they are members of a national network of problem solvers and doers.
