Take part in DC's planning for a population that is aging

The Foggy Bottom West End Village is sponsoring the October 31 Community Consultation to assist the District in collecting input regarding the following aspects of city life that influence the health and quality of life of older adults: Outdoor spaces and public buildings; Transportation; Housing; Social participation; Respect and social inclusion; Civic participation and employment; Communication and information; Community support and health services; Elder abuse and fraud; and Disaster preparedness.

The meeting, open to Village members and our Foggy Bottom West End neighbors, is part of a series of community conversations that will help inform a plan to ensure DC is an age-friendly city in practice.

More information about the event is on the Foggy Bottom West End Village calendar.

But wait, there's more!   Your organization can also sponsor an Age-Friendly Community Consultation.   The Age-Friendly DC staff makes it easy.   Learn more about scheduling a meeting in your community; check out this advisory: Sponsor an Age-Friendly DC Community Consultation in your Community.   You'll find all the information you need in the flyer posted there.
