About the project
urbanMetrics was retained by the City of Burlington to prepare an action plan to keep its older adult community (aged 55+) healthy, active and connected to the community. The strategic plan being prepared by urbanMetrics is considered an important first step to ensure that the City’s program offering, and its service delivery model, are appropriately aligned with current and future needs of aging residents.
The action plan is predicated on the World Health Organization (WHO), Age Friendly initiative and is intended to dovetail with parallel work being carried out by Halton Region. The use of quantified engagement (i.e online surveys and live audience polling) played key role in preparing a BAAP to ensure the needs of stakeholders are accurately reflected in the plan.
