Winners of the 2008 Livable Communities Awards to be Announced


The National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) and the AARP will host a briefing on Universal Design and the 50+ housing market. The briefing will feature the four national winners of the 2008 Livable Communities Awards. The awards honor builders, developers and remodelers that create attractive, well-designed homes and communities that are comfortable, safe and accessible for people of all ages and abilities.


The 50+ housing market is one of the fastest growing market segments in the housing industry. Builders, remodelers and developers are looking for design trends that can help them meet consumers’ needs and expectations. The winners of the 2008 Livable Communities Awards – from Tampa, Fla., Winooski, Vt., Los Angeles, Calif., and Bainbridge Island, Wash. – will explain the details that set their projects apart. The winning projects were selected for important design innovations related to:

- Universal Design
- Accessibility

- Energy efficiency and ease of maintenance
