Design for Aging Committee

WalkBoston, Creating an Age-Friendly Walking City

Adi Nochur will join the Design for Aging Committee this month to talk about Age-Friendly Walking, a new collaboration between WalkBoston, the Boston Elderly Commission, and many other city agencies and community organizations to advance safe and comfortable walking for Boston seniors. The work is being supported by a three-year grant from the Tufts Health Plan Foundation. Age-Friendly Walking is currently working in three pilot neighborhoods (Mattapan Square, the South End – Mass Ave corridor, and East Boston – Border and Meridian Street corridors) to identify key issues and concerns, and to implement street and sidewalk improvements that create safe and pleasant walking conditions for seniors. The lessons learned from the pilot neighborhoods will be used to create guidelines for a long-term citywide approach to senior walking. For more details, visit http://www.walkboston.org/age-friendly.

A native and nearly lifelong resident of the Boston area, Adi Nochur joined WalkBoston as Project Manager in October 2015. He supports, manages and implements technical assistance projects to promote walking in communities across the state, in coordination with local municipal staff, state agency partners and local community groups. Adi holds a Master in City Planning Degree from M.I.T. and a Bachelor of Science in Environmental Studies and Biology from Tufts University.

For those who qualify, 1.5 LU/HSWs are available
