Cities for All Ages: Land Use Planning and Our Aging Population
Date: Wednesday, 7/28/2010
Start Time: 7:00 pm
Event Type: Workshop
Sponsor: Chapter / Committee
Location: San Carlos Library, 610 Elm Street, San Carlos.
Speaker: Don Weden, Retired Principal Planner, Santa Clara County
Santa Clara County is about to be hit by a "senior tsunami." In less than
20 years, 1/4 of our county's adult population will be over 65, as the
Baby Boom generation ages. Many will be non-drivers — living in cities
that were mostly designed around the automobile.
What can we do to adapt our cities to assure that our growing senior
population — and others in our community — can live active, interesting,
and productive lives, without having to drive or own a car? Learn how
creating green, "senior-friendly" communities can contribute to our
economic, environmental, and social sustainability.
