McCartney, Grace, Oo, Lin Khant, Wardell, Robyn (2022), Planning for an Age Friendly Tompkins County: Looking beyond Land Use. Tompkins County Age Friendly Center for Excellence, Cornell University Dept of City and Reg, Planning.

This report summarizes the result of an Engaged Cornell grant under the supervision of Professor Mildred E. Warner and Dr. Xue Zhang with the Tompkins County Age Friendly Center for Excellence. Our research team collaborated with a variety of partners, each of which plays their own role in making our County more age friendly. In 2015, The Tompkins County Office for the Aging (COFA) led successful efforts to join AARP’s Network of Age-friendly Communities. In 2019, Tompkins County was one of three counties in New York to receive a grant from the Health Foundation of Western New York to develop the Age Friendly Center for Excellence. This initiative is a partnership amongst COFA, Cornell University, local health organizations and municipalities.
