Committed To Becoming More Age-Friendly
Maple Grove United States of America
The City of Maple Grove has had services for seniors for many years, with direct staff involvement in the past 20 plus. The City owns an 80-unit senior highrise apartment building, and the 55Foward (Senior Program) has over 55,000 participants in programs including education, fitness, arts, discussion, social/recreational and special events. The City of Maple Grove provides a dial-a-ride transportation program to citizens of all ages within the city limits. The Community Development Department has worked with developers to provide housing options for older adults, including single-level townhouses, market rate, subsidized and housing with services. The City hopes to learn from our Age-Friendly work what we are doing well, and how we can improve as we see the increasing numbers of older adults aging in place and moving to our community.
