Senior Adult Master Plan (SAMP)
YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE FOR YOUR COMMUNITY AND YOU!
In 2009, the City of Thousand Oaks City Council approved the Senior Adult Master Plan which is now well into the implementation phase. Those who would like to find out about joining an implementation team should contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 805-381-7362. Additional information can also be found in the SAMP brochure.
A special Council on Aging meeting was held on September 24, 2014 in which all members of SAMP Implementation Teams, as well as the general public, were invited to discuss the future direction of the Senior Adult Master Plan Implementation.
A Volunteer Appreciation Breakfast was held on December 11, 2014 to thank all the SAMP volunteers for their dedication and commitment to planning for the future of senior adult services in Thousand Oaks.
