Livable Communities Communities Approach offers seniors the opportunity to add life to their years by encouraging people to come together to think, make choices and take action in ways that will improve the quality of life for all ages through:

  • Affordable, accessible housing options in their community
  • A wide range of recreational, social and cultural activities
  • Public transportation and walkable streets
  • Preservation of its positive features for the future

Most importantly, it has a “village” personality. Livable Community Villages are networks of people with shared interests. Many of these villages already exist throughout Westchester in the form of neighborhood associations, houses of worship, congregate housing and civic and social organizations.
