Last month, the City of Boise joined AARP's Network of Age-Friendly Communities - municipalities committed to developing comprehensive strategies for creating safe and accessible amenities as well as fully inclusive communities. Idaho Matters speaks with Boise Parks and Recreation director, Doug Holloway, and Thomas V.
