The benefits of living in a walkable community like Harmony

Posted by Town of Harmony on Dec 22, 2015 11:50:11 AM

Sidewalks don’t automatically make a community walkable.

Walkability is about much more than being pedestrian-friendly. Encouraging people to walk requires thoughtful design and a holistic approach to development and lifestyle. Residents need to have places to go, a desire to go outside, and yes, sidewalks.

Active Adult Communities: 6 things to consider

Posted by Town of Harmony on Dec 2, 2015 10:00:00 AM

Are you retired? Close to retirement? Have you worked hard all your life, raised a family, ready to finally relax? Or, perhaps you’re at the apex of your career.

Either way, if you’re in your 50s, 60s, or 70s, an active adult community could be for you.

So what’s an active adult community anyway? It’s a development that offers relatively maintenance-free living for people 55 and older. “Age-restricted” communities typically require that 80 percent of homeowners be at least 55. “Age-targeted” communities, on the other hand, simply market to the 55+ crowd.

However, an active adult community isn’t just a run-of-the-mill development; it’s a lifestyle, with “active” being the key word.

These are not assisted-living facilities or nursing homes. And by no means are children (especially grandchildren!) barred from these developments. Rather, they simply are communities of people in the same stage of life who enjoy the ease and leisure of resort-style living.

Here are 6 things to consider when checking out an active adult community.

1. What are the amenities? (And who can use them?)
An average 55+ community has a pool, gym, golf course, and an activities center (more on that next). Some have libraries, tennis courts, and even spas. Again, your grandkids (and friends) are probably welcome to enjoy the amenities with you when they’re visiting. But make sure to inquire about the hours of operations and guest policies. Many communities are gated and require access cards or keys to enter these pseudo-public places.

The Lakes Recreation Center rendering . This 6,200 square foot facility includes multipurpose rooms, a fitness center, and a pool will be exclusive to the 55+ residents only.
