Lifelong Communities: Planning for an Aging Population

By 2030, central Ohio's population over 50 will grow an anticipated 90%. Communities have to start planning ahead. With aging populations and more residents, it's important for cities and towns to consider making their environments 'friendly' to people in all stages of life. This hour, join guest host, Steve Brown, as we talk more about planning for lifelong communities in Central Ohio. What social services and support should be provided for an aging population? How will the physical planning change in re-working street design, or zoning codes? How will work force planning function? All this and more, this hour on All Sides.

  • Dana McDaniel (Deputy City Manager, City of Dublin, Ohio)
