The City of Arnold, Missouri, was the first city in the State of Missouri to be designated as an Age-Friendly Community by the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP) and the World Health Organization (WHO). Along with this honor came the responsibility of producing an extensive 3-Year Action Plan to present to these organizations.

The AARP Network of Age-Friendly States and Communities serves as a catalyst to implement the types of changes that make communities more livable for people of all ages, especially older adults. The network provides cities, towns, counties, and states with the resources to become more age-friendly by tapping into national and global research, planning models, and best practices.

Membership in the AARP Network of Age-Friendly States and Communities means that a community’s elected leadership has made a commitment to actively work with residents and local advocates to make their town, city, county or state an age-friendly place to live.

Creation, production, and publication of the Action Plan had a short deadline and required Arnold City Council review and approval prior to submission to AARP/WHO. The City’s Commission on Aging & Disabilities provided content (charts, graphs, tables, and survey results supplied in varying fonts and formats) produced by multiple contributors. Leinicke Group was asked to provide cover and interior design and layout, images, and cost-effective production of this 120-page publication in super low quantities – 13 copies for initial review and 25 more final books for submission to AARP and WHO – which required digital printing.

A geometric hexagonal graphic element and City of Arnold images throughout the publication enhanced the City’s theme of “A Great Place to Live, Work, and Play for a Lifetime.” Leinicke Group selected type fonts and developed a simple and flexible interior design that allowed all pre-formatted content to flow and read seamlessly.
