Stewart Age-friendly Community Assessment and Planning Project
Recognizing that the needs of seniors and people with disabilities in Stewart will increasingly need to be addressed, the District of Stewart applied for an age-friendly community planning grant and committed to “assess existing conditions for seniors and people with disabilities, and review and amend the OCP and other bylaws. In January, 2011, the District engaged a professional planner to conduct the assessment which would be used to inform the development of a plan to move Stewart closer toward an age-friendly community. This report documents the results of the community assessment process and provides some recommendations to begin to address the community priorities that have surfaced.
