If you have elderly relatives or friends who live in San Mateo County, you may be interested in this announcement from the office of San Mateo's Fifth District Supervisor Adrienne Tissier.
They asked if we could pass along this information to the consumers and real estate agents who read and subscribe to the Silicon Valley Real Estate Blog. The event they want to publicize is the free Livable Communities for Successful Aging forum:
It will be held on May 30th at the San Mateo County Events Center. The purpose of the forum is to allow members of the community to identify characteristics of developments that will be attractive to residents as they age and remain in San Mateo County.
By the year 2030, the county's health department estimates that about 30% of all residents will be 65 years of age or order (about 160,000 persons).
The forum will focus on what people would like to see developed along the El Camino Real-- not only what types of buildings but also the services that would be attractive enough that people would decide to move to the El Camino and to remain in San Mateo County.
From that vision we hope that we can offer principles of a livable community that will be adopted by city councils and the county. The forum is sponsored by the County of San Mateo, the San Mateo County Association of Realtors, and Samtrans.
