Age-Friendly Sarasota Action Plan

About the June  2017 – May 2020 Action Plan

  • The Age-Friendly Sarasota Action Plan, a requirement of joining the WHO/AARP Global Network of Age-Friendly Cities and Communities,
    • was created to identify age-friendly goals and objectives based on our Planning Phase (May 2015 – May 2017)
    • aims to incorporate actions throughout Sarasota County that were already underway or will be implemented in our Implementation Phase (June 2017 – May 2020)
  • The Action Plan represents a synthesis of research findings based on the input of nearly 1,200 Sarasota County residents aged 50-plus.
    • These residents participated in either focus groups or survey research in 2015 and expressed their perspectives and preferences regarding important community features.
    • The research findings were then 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.
Annual progress reports about the Age-Friendly Sarasota Action Plan will be posted on this webpage. If you have questions regarding the Action Plan, please contact Dr. Kathy Black, Senior Age-Friendly Advisor, at
