AN ACT CONCERNING LIVABLE COMMUNITIES.


OFA Fiscal Note

State Impact: None

Municipal Impact: None

Explanation

This bill requires the Commission on Aging to establish a “Livable Communities” initiative to serve as a (1) forum for best practices and (2) resource clearinghouse to help municipal and state leaders design livable communities that allow residents to age in place (i.e., remain in their own homes and communities regardless of age or disability).

It also requires the commission to report to various legislative committees by July 1, 2014.

Since the Commission currently performs similar functions, this does not result in a fiscal impact.
