AARP and Main Street America Launch Series on ‘Open Streets’ Programs

Jul 29, 2020

In partnership with the AARP Livable Communities Team, Main Street America is launching a series of briefs to explore the benefits of open streets programs, outline a set of priorities local leaders should consider when implementing these initiatives, and provide examples of open streets projects in two Main Street communities.

Commercial District Design: COVID-19 Response and Management is a series of design-centered briefs developed to equip community leaders with safe, equitable, age-friendly strategies to support economic recovery from the impacts of COVID-19.

For those age-and dementia friendly communities looking for support to take action on open street programs that focus on older adults, please check out this blog post with a funding opportunity from the Solomon Foundation
