AARP meeting to focus on age-friendly communities @ Heritage Towers
Apr 14 @ 5:30 pm – 8:00 pm

SHERIDAN — On Friday, the AARP Chapter of Sheridan will host a session on creating livable and age-friendly communities.

David Hough, a member of the AARP-Wyoming Executive Council, will lead a discussion on the characteristics of a livable community and how a city or town can improve its appeal for individuals of all ages. With more than 30 years of experience in community and park planning, Hough has studied many aspects of community design and livability. He has been involved in the establishment of transit systems, trails, has prepared bicycle and pedestrian plans, and has designed neighborhood parks. He resides in Casper, where he served the city of Casper in the community development and public services departments for 18 years.

After finishing out his planning career as a private consultant, Hough retired and became involved in AARP.

He found the AARP initiatives on livable and age-friendly communities of particular interest and has built an understanding of these programs and how they would apply to Wyoming communities. He has assisted the city of Casper with the implementation of the recently completed Senior Services Study (an update of the 2008 Baby Boomer Study) and helped secure a commitment by the Casper City Council to be the first AARP designated Age Friendly Community in Wyoming.

Hough is now working with other Wyoming communities like Sheridan and Jackson on steps they can take to make their communities more livable not just for seniors but for residents and visitors of all ages.

Friday’s event will include a potluck dinner beginning at 5:30 p.m. A short business meeting will follow and Hough’s presentation will begin at 6 p.m.

The event will take place in the dining room at Heritage Towers, 428 N. Jefferson St. For more information, contact Wayne Schatz at 751-5047.
