Making Berea a Great Place to Grow Up and Grow Old 

New Survey Seeks Community Input – Take the Online Survey

Berea like many other cities across Kentucky and around America is aging. Fifteen short years from now, one out of every five Americans will be 65 or older. That’s why Berea is taking steps now to become a more “age-friendly” and “livable” for people to want to live, work, and stay.  As part of the AARP Network of Age-Friendly Communities program, Berea is working now to prepare for the needs that will come from this change.  “We know that our aging population is growing and will continue to increase in numbers in the years ahead,” said Berea Mayor Steve Connelly.  “That is why we need to pay attention today to the issues that will affect the health and well-being of our citizens the most”.   Well-designed, livable communities promote health and sustain economic growth. And they make for happier, healthier residents– of all ages. In order to make that happen, we’re asking you to tell us how we’re doing and what we will need to do to make Berea a better place to live.

Please take the time to fill out this survey and share your thoughts, concerns and ideas so we may work together in helping to shape a brighter future. Tell your friends, neighbors, and co-workers about this that their voices are needed as well.  Answer only the questions you feel comfortable in answering. However, we encourage you to answer all the questions you can. Please note that the information you provide is confidential and will not be shared in any way that could lead to your identification.  Please contact us if you have questions about the survey or want to become involved in the Age-Friendly Berea working group.
