Palmetto Bay continues the council teamwork required to Join the AARP Network of Age-Friendly Communities. Making our community age friendly (for ALL ages) is a priority of ALL members of the Palmetto Bay Village Council.
Our application was formally submitted in March, 2017.
Note - from the official AARP website (CLICK HERE):
WHAT MEMBERSHIP IS AND ISN'T
Communities in the AARP age-friendly network are not retirement villages, gated developments, nursing homes or assisted living facilities.
Membership in the network does not mean that the community is, currently, "age-friendly" or a great place to retire.
Membership in the network is not an endorsement by AARP.
What membership does mean is that a community's elected leadership has made the commitment to actively work toward making their town, city or county a great place for people of all ages.
Our Palmetto Bay application was formally submitted this week (March 16, 2017). I will continue to keep everyone up to date.
