Abstract
Purpose: The purpose of this research was examine potential barriers and facilitators to the implementation of healthy public policy related to aging, specifically in municipal planning and transportation departments, in the suburban context. Research Questions: What are the factors which influence successful implementation of healthy public policy in municipal and, specifically, suburban contexts? How do suburban planning and transportation policies interface with policies aimed at physical environmental changes to shape the built environment in ways that are theorized to affect seniors’ health? Methods and Results: A qualitative case study approach was used to examine Strathcona County’s Older Adults Plan (2009a). Strathcona County is a municipality bordering Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Data was collected through document reviews and 19 semi-structured interviews with 21 individuals involved in the development of the plan or potentially affected by its implementation. Results were triangulated in a final analysis of policy implementation capacity in Strathcona County.
