Livable La Mesa!

The City of La Mesa is launching a project called Livable La Mesa through AARP’s Livable Communities Initiative, with support from The San Diego Foundation Age-Friendly Communities Program. This initiative is an affiliate of the World Health Organization’s Global Network of Age-Friendly Cities and Communities, an international effort launched in 2006 to help cities prepare for their own and the world’s growing population of older adults. AARP’s Network of Age-Friendly Communities targets improvements in eight domains that influence the health and quality of life of older adults. Over the course of the next year, and with input from the La Mesa residents, the Livable La Mesa project will prepare a plan to help make La Mesa a community for all ages.

  • What is Live Well?
    Live Well will identify and advocate for policies and environmental changes that make healthy food more available and affordable, increase access to safe opportunities for physical activity, and provide residents with information they can use to find their own ways to practice healthy living. Live Well also brings into our communities the resources necessary to make improvements so that community priorities can be addressed without drawing on city and county general funds.

    Goals
    Through the participation of organizational partners and resident leaders, Live Well seeks to:
  • Develop a long-range vision for healthy communities
  • Create action plans for increasing support for healthy behaviors in different settings (La Mesa and Spring Valley neighborhoods, schools, health care, business, and faith community)
  • Recruit and train community residents who will lead and sustain this initiative
