Age Friendly Arlington
In May 2018 Arlington was accepted into the AARP/World Health Organization network of Age Friendly Communities. The Commission is working to identify key areas of focus to make Arlington even more Age Friendly. If you would like to know more, or are interested in helping, we invite you to attend a Commission meeting, or join one of the Committees. Meeting days and times can be found here..
We also invite you to take our short survey to share you ideas on what would make Arlington more Age Friendly.
