AARP Livable Communities Challenge

Last year, for the first-ever AARP Community Challenge, AARP invested nearly $780,000 to create change and improve the quality of life for people of all ages in communities nationwide. We have partnered up with AARP Livable Communities to rapidly revitalize main streets, downtowns and commercial areas. In November 2017, Fort Wayne residents transformed part of Columbia Avenue into a walkable activity center, featuring a shared purple lane, public plaza, music, and food.
