the future of aging

Livable communities

A

s we explore the many aspects of the
future of aging, with this issue, we look at
a relatively new phenomenon referred to
as Livable Communities. Of course, people have
proven, we can live anywhere and do, but are these
places really inviting to a mix of generations? Can
young and old find the services and conveniences
they need for a safe and enjoyable life?
A walkable community is a common term
describing an alternative to drive-only suburbia.
Yet walking is so basic to human life that we often
take it for granted. Perhaps a more inspiring term is
'livability'.
Former US Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood
defined livability as "a community where you can
take kids to school, go to work, see a doctor, go
to the grocery store, have dinner and a movie,
and play with your kids (or grandkids) in a park, all
without having to get into a car."
According to Robert Steuteville, "A livable
community mixes the elements of a community
together in a rich gumbo of culture. The livable city
is not a monoculture of single-family subdivisions,
connected to arterial roads. The livable community
is not boring. It invites you to walk to the café, to
parks, to the museums and restaurants.
A livable community is one where you see the
doctor, school teacher, or plumber at the park, grocery store, or a community event. They know who
you are and greet you."
