"AGE-FRIENDLY EVANSTON!" TASK FORCE
Agendas & Minutes
The Mayor established a nine (9) member task force with a mandate to develop an Age Friendly Initiative, to include formulating a 3-year city-wide action plan for implementation. The Mayor requested the Commission on Aging to appoint 4 representatives, the Mental Health Board to appoint 1 representative and the Human Relations Commission to appoint 1 representative to the task force. The remaining 3 were appointed from the Evanston community at-large. Each member will serve without compensation for one five-year term.
The "Age Friendly Evanston!" Task Force:
1. Chairperson, Susan Cherco
2. Transportation, Helen Gagel
3. Respect & Social Inclusion, Dorothy Strong
4. Outdoor Spaces & Buildings, Susan Canter
5. Community & Health Services, Irene Pierce
The "Age Friendly Evanston!" task force will make recommendations to the Mayor and the City Council on the creation and implementation of an action plan based on the objectives of the World Health Organization's (WHO) Age Friendly Communities Program. This program is an international effort to help prepare for a global demographic trend: the rapid aging of populations.
