When: Fri, Feb 15, 2013 12:00 PM – 1:30 PM CST
Presenter: Mildred Warner , Lydia Morken , Dorian Block
Host: American Planning Association, the Ohio Chapter
An aging population and the ‘browning’ of America are creating demand for communities that are friendly to all generations and ethnicities. Multi-generational planning uses smart growth principles to create livable communities that deliver places that help young and old remain active, connected and thriving in place.
Real progress will occur with a paradigm shift if generations work together and cultural imperatives are addressed. This session will highlight both research and on-the-ground experience in multi-generational planning.
