Age Friendly Community Survey

November 18, 2018 Public Report On Age Friendly Community

How well is Rochester meeting your needs as you age?


In the City for Good, in conjunction with AARP Minnesota, invites you to take part in an Age-Friendly Community Survey. In a livable, age-friendly community, people have access to resources that enhance personal independence; allows residents to age in a comfortable place; and, ultimately foster residents' engagement in the community's civic, economic, and social life.

We are seeking your views in eight areas of livability that include: outdoor spaces and buildings; transportation; housing; social participation; respect and social inclusion; civic participation and employment; and, communication and information. Your responses will inform future planning on how we can create a more livable community for people of every age.

The survey will only take you around 20 minutes to complete. Please let us hear from you!

Site Information
  • For the commercial sector, we tend to register startup activities (new companies and new commercial projects) that bring diversification and high-impact opportunities to the area.
  • For the non-profit sector, we wish to shine light on all the organizations and services that otherwise labor under relative obscurity.
  • Our hope is that will encourage cross-sector collaborations and creative solutions.

While there are a number of registries in the community,'s  distinct value is to pilot a database with a data structure and categorizations that answer the questions such as: What organizations or projects/programs in our community that have purported relevance with some of the over-arching focuses put forward by initiatives such as DMC, J2G and Health Improvements?

This database could be used as one of the ways to explore the capacities of the community. If you are someone on an exploratory journey to learn about the greater Rochester community. could be an interesting first step.

The following defines the various project phases:
  1. Available - a product, program or service is in production
  2. Develop - program or application is being developed
  3. Plan - idea is solid, stakeholders are identified, and there is strong commitment to go forward from all parties.
  4. Concept Phase - idea scoped out with enough details to give an early sizing and/or to build a proof of concept
  5. Pre-concept Phase - an early idea or a requirement.
