Arlington Heights is an Age-Friendly Certified City
The Village of Arlington Heights is one of twelve Age-Friendly Cities in Illinois and 674 across the country. To receive the Age-Friendly Certification, the community must submit an Action Plan. The Senior Citizen's Commission and staff worked collaboratively with local agencies to create the Age-Friendly Initiative. As a result, an AARP Community Survey was launched in 2019 with over 880 respondents over the age of 45. The Commission evaluated the findings, presented them to the Board in January 2021, and created an action plan. The Action Plan addresses the top three concerns of residents: affordable housing, increased affordable transportation options, and a central source of information. The Certification expires in 2025, which the Commission will continue with the process of evaluation again.
