As our population rapidly ages, Daly City wants to help our older adults live their best lives possible, but we need your help. Over the next year we will research, create, implement, and communicate a workable plan that will focus on these eight areas:

  1. Communication and Information 
  2. Social Participation 
  3. Respect and Social Inclusion  
  4. Civic Participation and Employment
  5. Outdoor Spaces and Buildings 
  6. Community and Health Services 
  7. Transportation
  8. Housing 

Age-Friendly City FAQ

What is an Age-Friendly City?  
Age-Friendly Communities are those whose leaders commit to upholding the 8 domains of livability: Community/Health Care, Transportation, Housing, Social Participation, Outdoor Spaces and Buildings, Respect/Social Inclusion, Civic Participation/Empowerment, and Communication/Information.

Daly City was designated an Age-Friendly City by the World Health Organization (WHO) and AARP Network of the Age-Friendly States and Communities on June 25, 2020 thanks to the leadership of San Mateo County Supervisor David Canepa, expert guidance from the Center for Age-Friendly Excellence (CAFE), and the commitment and vision of our Age-Friendly Task Force, whose original members included:

  • Chair Phyllis Rizzi, Advocate for Bayshore Community's older population
  • Cherie Querol-Moreno, Commissioner with San Mateo County Commission on Aging (Retired)
  • Glenn Sylvester, Councilmember
  • Mike Stancil, Daly City Partnership Executive Director
  • Pat Bohm, Daly City Partnership Executive Director (Retired)
  • Perla Ibarrientos, PBRC Board Chair
  • Rev. Leonard Oakes, Pastor Holy Child & St. Martin Episcopal Church (Retired)
  • Thomas Barrett, Hillcrest Senior Housing Social Services Coordinator (Retired)
  • Ann Cooney, Active Adult/Senior Services Supervisor
  • Jennifer Der, Senior Recreation Services Supervisor
  • Leilani Ramos, Assistant to the City Manager

Why are we doing this survey?
Daly City wants to optimize the opportunities for active aging by putting in place age-friendly services, settings, and structures to support age-related needs. To do this we need data and information which will tell us what areas need some improvement and help us to create an Action Plan.

Daly City is a great city, how can you possibly improve it?
We agree! Daly City is a great city. While the City's AARP livability index score is above average, we strive for a community that works for ALL residents, not most residents.

Is this survey anonymous?
Yes. There are no identifying questions or ways of knowing what answers you provided. Any demographic information will be used to make sure the survey respondents are representative of the city's population, and answers will be used in aggregate only.
