One of the primary reasons the Committee on Aging (CoA) was established was to assist the Parks & Recreation Department (Department) with the implementation of the Temple City Senior Master Plan (SMP). To that end, the Department is committed to working with the CoA to create an annual Senior Master Plan Progress Report that highlights our collective accomplishments, plans, and present/future goals regarding the SMP.
