Project/Research Report

The Imagining Livability Design Collection

A Visual Portfolio of Tools and Transformations

by AARP and the Walkable and Livable Communities Institute

The Imagining Livability Design Collection describes some of the most common tools and treatments for creating age-friendly environments — from the least-expensive, short-term wins to dramatic changes and long-term initiatives. All of the proposed transformations are expected to create a return on investment by increasing business income, property values and new development; decreasing vehicle crashes, pedestrian injuries and fatalities; reducing medical costs; and improving air quality and overall public health.

Photovisions such as those in this collection help community members and local leaders imagine what’s possible, develop a shared vision for the future and act upon that vision.
