Livable communities support the efforts of neighborhoods, towns and cities to become great places for people of all ages. Livable Lexington is a collaboration of volunteers and organizations working to make Lexington-Fayette County more livable for everyone at any age.
We believe communities should provide safe walkable streets; age-friendly housing and transportation options; access to needed services; and opportunities for residents of all ages to participate in community life.
Volunteers and staff from several organizations are working to make Lexington-Fayette County a better place to grow by promoting an "age-in-everything" lens across all aspects of community life.
The initiative asks the community's public agencies, businesses, cultural, educational and religious institutions, community groups, and individuals to consider how changes to policy and practice can create a city more inclusive of older adults and more sensitive to their needs.
