Age Friendly Scarborough Survey

posted Sep 11, 2019, 5:30 AM by Nicole Hall

The Age Friendly Scarborough Initiative is a group of Scarborough residents who are working together to make Scarborough a more livable place for everyone. The Age Friendly Community concept is a World Health Organization vision that has been endorsed by AARP and is spreading across Maine.

Age Friendly Scarborough is starting to gather information and we need your help to go further! We hope to hear from everyone in the community.

This survey focuses on aspects of our community that are important for the health and well-being of older residents because we realize that things helpful for older citizens benefit all ages. It also explores what might help older residents age in place or age in the community.

Please take a few minutes of your time to complete this survey. Your opinions will help us learn about the strengths of Scarborough and will help us to identify opportunities for improvement as we build an age-friendly community. The survey results will be analyzed and from there, we will work together to develop action steps to address our community needs.

Your opinion is important to us! We appreciate your help!

Skate Park Access During Construction

posted Apr 10, 2019, 4:57 AM by Nicole Hall

The skate park at Memorial Park will remain open during the construction of the new public safety building. Construction fencing will restrict access to the park from three sides with access remaining open from the Durant Drive sidewalk. There will be no parking adjacent to the skate park so vehicles will need to park in the High School lot next to Town Hall.
