The Imagining Livability Design Collection

Apr 1, 2015

The Imagining Livability Design Collection describes some of the most common tools and treatments for creating age-friendly environments — from the least-expensive, short-term wins to dramatic changes and long-term initiatives. All of the proposed transformations are expected to create a return on investment by increasing business income, property values and new development; decreasing vehicle crashes, pedestrian injuries and fatalities; reducing medical costs; and improving air quality and overall public health.

Photovisions such as those in this collection help community members and local leaders imagine what’s possible, develop a shared vision for the future and act upon that vision.
