Accessory Dwelling Units
AFCLK’s Action Plan Section on Homes includes promoting the production of Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs) to increase housing choices. In 2022 the Bath City Council unanimously passed an ordinance, to amend the land use code to include ADUs. An ongoing educational campaign funded by AARP helped create videos, a guidebook, and a trifold flyer to empower residents who consider an ADU on their property for a loved one, or a caregiver; to downsize or to rent for a minimum rental period of 90 days.

Age Friendly Technology
Funded by Maine Community Foundation, in partnership with National Digital Equity Center as well as our friends at Age-Friendly Georgetown and sponsored by AFCLK this program continues to invite eligible residents to participate: receive a smart device with internet connection for one year and learn how to use it in five basic computer training sessions presented locally in 2023 – Get in touch!
Chess & Checkers Tables
Sponsored by AARP, Davenport Fund, the City of Bath, Bath Regional Career and Technical Center and AFCLK three newly built chess & checkers tables were installed at Elm Street Plaza in Bath in 2021. This partnership helped furnish a space for intergenerational activities for residents and visitors of all ages. Game sets are available at Country Farm Furniture and Maine Street Design Co. Two additional outdoor chess & checkers tables funded by AARP and Davenport Trust were set up outside the Bath Area Family YMCA in autumn of 2022. Chess and checkers sets are available at the YMCA front desk. Please return for others to enjoy!
