This report includes discussions among 105 members of the community of the Bangor area in regard to aspects of livability. The goal was to identify and understand the strengths and challenges of the citizens of Bangor as an age-friendly and livable community. This was concluded from from eight different domains of livability. The following are key findings to emerge from these community discussions: outdoor spaces and buildings, transportation, housing, social participation, respect and social inclusion, civic participation and employment, communication and information, and community and health services. Citizens were encouraged to share their opinions about aspects of the city that need improvement, as well as areas that are either meeting or exceeding expectations.
