Spotlight on Committees— Livable Community Advocacy

The Livable Community Advocacy (LCA) Committee looks at Brookline as an exceptionally good place to live for older people –and for everyone else. The committee calls attention to the Town’s good features (such as the many residential buildings that offer one-floor living) and advocates for improvements (such as better clearance of snow and ice from sidewalks in commercial areas). LAC persuaded the Town to become New England’s first municipality to join the World Health Organization’s Age-Friendly City initiative. The committee develops its agenda on the basis of concerns of Brookline seniors. New members are welcome to its monthly meetings. The committee also seeks volunteers of all ages to work on projects.
