Environments for Aging - Spring 2015 - 10

EDITORIAL

The end of isolation
So long, senior living "islands"-the market has spoken
"Community" is the name of the game in senior living
initiatives today. And while the term can be interpreted
in a variety of ways-everything from simple, integrated
programming efforts inside the building to deeply
intertwined, city-wide services and socialization-the goal
is the same: to avoid the isolation of elders.
The Award of Merit winner in this year's EFA Design
Showcase demonstrates this community outlook in a very
promising way, with integrated retail/restaurant offerings,
walking paths that expand into neighboring communities,
and more. (Our story on Brickstone by St. John's can be
found on page 42.) Another project in the competition takes the concept even further,
with a staggeringly ambitious 40-year plan to transform an entire city.
That project, the Apple Valley Age-Friendly City Plan, was the brainchild of a group
of senior living providers, architects, and consultants who met at an innovation
summit in 2011. There, the group rallied around a theme of "livable communities" and
spent 18 hours working to create "a package of tools, processes, and services to
create environments that are both socially and economically vibrant and successfully
integrate the well-being of people of all ages and stages." They dubbed the concept
Vitalocity.
About three years later, the team presented its "Vitalocity Roadmap" to the local
planning commission in Apple Valley, Minn., after undergoing extensive development
workshops, conceptualization exercises, and community meetings. The cornerstone
of the proposal (and of their Showcase submission) was a demonstration project
called Central Village-to be built in an underutilized part of the city on 15 acres, with
a focus on mixed-use, walkable, intergenerational housing and services.
What will it take to get there? Among other things, burying an existing highway to

allow for easier access between the village and the heart of downtown.
I told you it was ambitious. But it's not completely pie-in-the-sky, when you
consider the time, work, and expertise behind the planning. And at least some of
Vitalocity's recommendations are being considered for development under Apple
Valley's rolling 40-year comprehensive plan, according to Gregor Rae, chairman and
CEO of BusinessLab, one of the Vitalocity founders.
You can learn more about this fascinating project in the team's own words on
page 108, and by contacting Rae directly at grae@businesslab.co.uk. Efforts like this
may be a long way from reality-but then again, maybe not. It's exciting to see such
detailed plans from people who live and breathe this industry. Every step gets us that
much closer to a more integrated and vibrant reality for senior living. EFA
