In 2018, the City of Fishers joined the network of AARP Network of Age-Friendly Communities, an affiliate of the WHO Global Network of Age-Friendly Cities and Communities.
The designation emphasizes the City’s commitment to continued age-friendly efforts in four distinct categories: land use, housing, transportation, and parks.
Age-Friendly Action Plan
Fishers has taken steps to create an age-friendly community through the adoption of the Fishers 2040 Comprehensive Plan which includes age-friendly practices and focuses on creating a smart, vibrant, and entrepreneurial city.
Through the work of the Age-Friendly Fishers Committee and the support of our community partners, Age-Friendly Fishers prioritizes strategies that expand upon Fishers 2040 goals and objectives and will continue to identify best practices, community needs, and opportunities that support this vision.
