Santa Clara County is about to be hit by a "senior tsunami." In less than 20 years, more than 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 more about this rapidly approaching "senior tsunami" and what our cities can do to prepare for it.
This event is being put on by the Urban Planning Coalition (UPC). The UPC is the official student planning organization of San Jose State University.
