From the event description: We'll be covering national and state data on housing and transportation relevant to an aging population. Hear how disability rates, family structures, foreclosure rates, and the age of homes have shifted in the decade, as older households adapt to face new and continuing challenges. Learn what’s being done to address issues of affordability. Understand the latest travel patterns of those 65+ as observed in the 2009 National Household Travel Survey. Hear what public and private sector strategies AARP’s planning experts recommend for the creation of lifelong communities. During the webinar, presenters will show their new 6.5 minute video entitled, “Active Living for All Ages: Creating Communities Around Transit,” and discuss how the voices of older adults living in Arlington, VA’s TOD neighborhoods can help win the argument for walkable, mixed-use communities.
