In 2018, the City of La Mesa launched a project called Livable La Mesa through AARP’s Livable Communities Initiative, with support from The San Diego Foundation Age-Friendly Communities Program. This initiative is an affiliate of the World Health Organization’s Global Network of Age-Friendly Cities and Communities, an international effort launched in 2006 to help cities prepare for their own and the world’s growing population of older adults. AARP’s Network of Age-Friendly Communities targets improvements in eight domains that influence the health and quality of life of older adults and citizens of all ages. With input from the La Mesa residents, the Livable La Mesa project prepared a plan to help make La Mesa a community for all ages.
