Friday Forum: Public Space For All Ages
March 20, 2020 @ 5:00 am - 6:00 am
As we age, our needs, abilities, and preferences change. Fewer people will be able to drive and local services for people with disabilities and other needs will need to dramatically improve. Having a connected and accessible transportation network; that includes walking, biking, transit, and driving options; will be an important factor in people’s ability to age in place.
Who uses public spaces? 38% of older adults have a disability and 42% of people with disabilities are low income. Hear how parks, plazas, and other public programming honor those needs or miss the mark on serving our aging community.
