Front page of AARP fact sheets showing the list of contentsAARP, the association for retirees in America, is very pro-active in the area of liveability, particularly for older Americans.  They teamed up with the Walkable and Livable Communities Institute to produce a set of Livability Fact Sheets. The goal of the two organisations is to help towns, cities and communities to become safe, healthier, more walkable and overall livable for people of all ages. There are eleven comprehensive fact sheets which include bicycle use and lanes, density, economic development, parking, footpaths, street trees and traffic calming. The four page Fact Sheets can be downloaded individually or in one document. Each Fact sheet has a first page that gives an overview, Myth-Busting is tackled on the second, the third is How to Get it Right, and the fourth, Success Stories. An practical and pragmatic set of Fact Sheets to suit a variety of users.
