Cranston Herald: Cranston becomes second RI city to join AARP's age-friendly network

Cranston has become the second city in Rhode Island to join the AARP Network of Age-Friendly States and Communities.

“Your progress in Cranston is reverberating across the state … We want to be another push in the direction of an age-friendly Rhode Island. This is how we get there, one community at a time,” state Office of Healthy Aging Director Rosamaria Amoros Jones said during a press conference to announce the designation Sept. 26 at the Cranston Enrichment Center.

“Today's a really exciting day … because as everyone here knows, Cranston's one of the best places to live in America. And it starts right here with all of you,” Mayor Allan Fung said.

He added: “Today is another part of that commitment that we are making as a city … It's a commitment by all of our different city department, all of our community partners, continuing to meet your needs and our residents' needs as we grow older in this great city.”
