Age-Friendly Sarasota Action Plan
& Progress Report

About the June 2017 – May 2020 Action Plan

  • The Age-Friendly Sarasota County Action Plan identifies age-friendly goals and objectives based on Age-Friendly Sarasota’s Planning Phase from May 2015 – May 2017. All WHO/AARP Global Network of Age-Friendly Cities and Communities develop action plans.
  • The Action Plan represents a synthesis of research findings based on the input of nearly 1,200 Sarasota County residents aged 50-plus who participated in either focus groups or survey research in 2015 and expressed their perspectives and preferences regarding important community features.
  • The research findings were shared throughout the community with stakeholders across all 8 domains of livability and across the following five sectors: people, businesses, nonprofit organizations, government, and media.
