Communities for a Lifetime

The Dakota County Communities for a Lifetime initiative brings together residents, local businesses, community organizations, cities, and county staff to create networks of vital, accessible communities.

What makes a Community for a Lifetime?

  • Transportation options to help keep people mobile and independent.
  • Sidewalks and paths that are walkable for transport and exercise.
  • A full range of affordable housing options as needs change.
  • Accessible and quality services that support older adults and caregivers in home and community settings.
  • Flexible and supportive employment and volunteer opportunities, including intergenerational activities.
  • Effective technology to connect people and help with life's activities.
