Town of Matthews
Age Friendly Matthews
Matthews was designated an AARP Age Friendly City in 2015 (the first in NC!). We are now in the next phase of the process - developing an Age Friendly Matthews Action Plan. The goal is to ensure the Town's future as an inclusive and accessible environment for people of all life stages and abilities.

The Matthews Age Friendly Strategic Planning Committee typically meets at 10:30 am on the last Wednesday of the month at the Matthews Community Center. Please call Maureen Keith at 704-708-1278 for more information.
