Increase the percent of 55+ resident participation to 13% by 2025
55+ programming was impacted dramatically by COVID-19 pandemic. As a result, several programs had to be canceled or moved to an online format. Additional safety modifications included virtual programming options, reduced in-person capacities and outdoor programming. Total registrations for 55+ residents in Recreation & Parks programs decreased in spite of the safety modifications. New programs this year this year include the 12 Days of Encore Event, an online event that offered 12 free virtual class dates at which adults 55 and older could participate in fitness, educational, lecture and wellness activities.
- Expand fitness and art program options for the 55+ Adult population
- Create a new Encore Volunteer program to engage 55+ Adults and provide social opportunities.
- Expand our lifelong learning programs to be year-round.
- Continue to provide subsidies to qualifying applicants.
