In 2020, the City of College Park was admitted into AARP’s network of age-friendly communities. A requirement of admission to this network is the creation of a report detailing action recommendations to make a given community more age-friendly. On May 13, 2021, the Prince George’s County Planning Board approved the PAMC application submitted by the City of College Park to fund such a report.
The completed report details the goals, objectives, and action items that should be considered by the City of College Park as it strives to improve its age-friendliness in five areas: housing, transportation, communication and information, social participation, and health services and community support. These goals cover a range of issues that affect the quality of life for seniors, students, and others who call the City of College Park home.
