This initiative has been implemented through a five “E” model including:
The Age-Friendly Business District pilot is an area that has been developed with an objective to empower businesses with resources and education to better serve customers of all ages. A geographic area within Little Havana with a high older adult concentration was selected as the pilot area for the Age-Friendly Business District. A walkable, half-mile radius area surrounding the Vista Alegre Retirement Home was selected. There are currently 29 participating business members of the Age-Friendly Business District.
The Little Havana official geographic boundaries are the Miami River to the North, SW 27th Avenue to the West, SW 11thSt to the South, and US1/the Miami River to the East
