Draft Mission Statement & Thoughts for the Mt. Airy Seniors Task Force Effort
(provided by Tony Burke)
Livability initiatives that achieve the greatest results include a mayor, city administrator, town manager and/or elected or appointed officials who are highly supportive of the project. It’s especially helpful when the municipality appoints one or two senior-level staff members to sit in on the Core Team.
Municipal Support is critical to implementing change in policies, services and infrastructure that will allow residents with different abilities and needs—and all ages—to live in a secure environ-ment, enjoy good health and well-being, and continue to participate fully in their community.
As a preliminary step toward establishing Mt. Airy, Md as a “Livable Community”, the mission of the Mt. Airy Seniors Task Force is to advocate for and promote a livable community for local seniors by providing critical information and solutions on issues important to their good health and well-being, and to ensure they are aware of available valuable resources for a fulfilling life.
