Making Evanston ‘age friendly’

Do you think Evanston is "age friendly"? The city wants to know.

Christina Ferraro, senior services manager for the city, says there'll be a series of meetings starting Saturday to gather community comments as well as a survey available online now and on paper starting Saturday at city recreation centers and other locations.

In addition, Mayor Elizabeth Tisdahl is seeking candidates to be part of a nine-member task force to develop a three-year action plan to make the city more age friendly.

The community meetings will be held at 10 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 19, at 1:30 p.m. and 7: p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 22, and at 10 a.m. Wednesday, Oct. 23, at the Levy Center and at 1 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 23, at the Fleetwood-Jourdain Center.
