Age-Friendly Sarasota Action Plan
& Five-Year Progress Report

About the June 2017 – May 2020 Action Plan

  • The Age-Friendly Sarasota Action Plan identified 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 was developed from 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 all five sectors: people, businesses, nonprofit organizations, government, and media.

Five-Year Progress Report (2015–2020)

This Progress Report is a milestone recognizing and celebrating the many efforts shaping Sarasota County as a community for all ages. Proud of its many accomplishments, we remind ourselves becoming Age-Friendly is a journey, not a destination. It’s a collective effort across multiple sectors. Each of us has something to contribute; no effort is too small.
