11 Source of data: U.S. Census Bureau, State Interim Projections by Age and Sex: , The Graying of America Percent of Total U.S. Population over 65 in 2030

12 Projections on Aging and Households By 2030 one in 5 Americans will be over age 65. Today 1 in 5 Americans have a disability. Life Expectancy will increase from 76 in 1993 to 82.6 in By 2050, the number of Americans over 85 will triple from 5.4 million to 19 million. By 2025, the number of single person households will equal family households. By 2050 the overwhelming majority of households will be single. Source: U.S. Census Bureau

21 Competing in a changing demographic context Research by Professor Arthur C. Nelson, University of Utah By 2025 only about one-fourth of all households in the U.S. will have children in them and nearly 30 percent will contain only one person The U.S. will add 32 million households from 2000 to 2025, but only 4 million will have children, while one-person households will make up 34 percent of the growth The two largest demographic groups in the country, the baby boomers and their children together comprising half the population want homes and commercial space in neighborhoods that do not exist in anywhere near sufficient quantity. More people are turning 65 each year than ever before, with one million people reaching that age in 2012 and two million projected in 2025 Demand for new homes through 2025 may be almost exclusively for multifamily, attached, and small-lot single-family detached homes Source: Patrick Doherty and Christopher Leinberger, writing in Washington Monthly Over half of development on the ground in 2025 will not have existed in 2000

22 ❸ Policies

23 Federal Perspective US Department of Transportation s Planning Emphasis Areas Ladders of Opportunity Models of Regional Cooperation Performance-based, outcomedriven planning Ladders of Opportunity: Access to essential services define and address gaps in connectivity that preclude access to housing, health care, jobs, education and recreation

24 Federal Perspective US EPA Building Blocks for Sustainable Communities Housing and Urban Development Section 202 Supportive Housing for the Elderly Assisted Living Conversion Program Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Healthy Aging initiative

25 APA s Policy Guide AGING IN COMMUNITY

26 APA Aging in Community Policy Guide Board of Directors adopted the Policy Guide in July 2014 Broad national input from technical and policy experts Uses: Inform legislative & advocacy positions Basis for partnerships with allied groups (e.g., AARP) Engage in outreach and development of best practices case studies and model policies for planners, advocates and other professionals

27 The Premise of the Policy Guide Aging of the population creates a unique opportunity and responsibility A multigenerational planning approach Reduce risk of social isolation, poverty, declining health & poor economic well- being Planners need to lead with comprehensive approaches and in mobilizing resources

28 Policy Principles Engagement Actively Involve Older Adults and Engage the Aging Perspective in the Planning Process Develop mechanisms to regularly consult with older adults on specific plans, policies and codes Consider meeting times, accessibility, transportation options, accessibility of communications Design should be systematically reviewed from an aging perspective Meet with community stakeholders to assess, discuss, and develop strategies to address unmet needs as well as apply the strengths of older adults Align the goals of aging in community with broader local community priorities

29 Policy Principles Housing Ensure that a Range of Affordable and Accessible Housing Options are Available for Older Adults Federal funding for the production of new & preservation of existing low-income rental housing Increased funding for the Low- Income Housing Tax Credit Program, Community Development Block Grants, the HOME Investment Partnerships Program and the National Housing Trust Fund Maintenance and modernization of the existing housing stock through direct financial assistance from loan and grant programs

30 Policy Principles Transportation Ensure Access to Quality Transportation Options for Older Adults Require design for the specific needs and abilities in each component of transportation systems Adopt policies and implement plans consistent with the principles of Complete Streets Explicitly address the needs and capacity of older road users in all plans, signs and facility design Fund planning and development of wellintegrated networks of pedestrian and bicycle facilities Increase funding and coordination of fixedroute public transportation, specialized transportation, human services transportation, and intercity bus and rail transit Create incentives for private resources to support specialized transportation services for older adults Improve education of professionals, stakeholders, decision-makers and the general public about the transportation needs of older Americans

31 Policy Principles Land Use Use Land-use and Zoning Tools to Create Welcoming Communities for Older Adults Develop zoning policies for accessible Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs) Encourage smaller minimum floor areas, smaller lot sizes & more compact development Adopt land-use policies and building codes to ensure that accessible design at a human-scale throughout a community Foster mixed-use development as opportunities to co-locate services, landuses & programs Coordinate transportation and land use to require neighborhoods, goods, services, and community facilities to be physically connected to each other by a variety of comfortable, safe, and logical mobility options

32 Policy Principles Economy Support the Economic Well-Being of Older Adults Promote age-friendly businesses that facilitate access, employment and use by older adults Promote workforce development programs and volunteer opportunities for and by older adults Develop policies and programs that recognize the importance of informal caregivers Remove discriminatory definitions of family from zoning codes

33 Policy Principals Community Assets and Supports Strengthen the Community Assets of and Supports for Older Adults Take an Age in everything approach to planning, where older adults are considered in all program and facility planning along with green building practices to ensure healthy environments This is especially critical in suburban & rural areas Foster mixed-use development to colocate services and programs in intergenerational settings, such as schools and community parks Offer a continuum of affordable housing and service options

34 Some Implementation Actions Co-op/non profit organizations Helping people to age in place by providing a network of services to people who don't want to move Village to Village Network National peer to peer network to help establish and continuously improve management of their own villages Mission is to enable communities to establish and effectively manage aging in community organizations initiated and inspired by their members

35 ❹ Implementation

36 AARP Public Policy Institute (PPI) SURVEY FINDINGS

37 What Is Livable? Community Preferences of Older Adults AARP developing a web-based index to measure community livability across the United States for people of all ages Focus group discussions Nationwide community livability survey of more than 4,500 older adults Focus on respondents 50+

38 Livability Framework The preferences of older adults are complex, intertwined, and sometimes conflicting

39 Key Findings for Planning Overwhelming desire for aging in place Stronger for those 65+ vs (87% to 71%) Just 17% say they plan to move in the next three years More likely to be members of minority groups, to have low incomes, to be non-drivers, and to currently live in metropolitan areas

40 General Population (50+) Findings

41 Priority Local Actions by Ethnicity

42 General Population Findings - Safety

43 General Population Findings Amenities Near Home

44 Proximity by Race & Ethnicity

45 Achieving Outcomes for TOD: An Analysis of Readiness One Strategy for Aging in Community

46 What is Transit Oriented Development? Development within ½ to ¼ mile of a transit station Compact, moderate to high intensity and density Contains a strong mix of residential & employment Excellent walk access to transit Oriented to the pedestrian Public space at the core Context is key Source: A Framework for Transit Oriented Development in Florida

47 TOD Readiness Analysis Purpose and Objectives

48 Readiness for TOD Achieving TOD is an evolutionary process with many factors Factors TODs need a specific combination of these factors to emerge and function effectively TODs emerge from opportunities Identifying those opportunities is the key to unlocking the potential for TOD in a specific location Geographic Economic Demographic Institutional

49 Objectives of the TOD Readiness Analysis Provide information to a variety of key TOD stakeholders Capture key factors from a variety of perspectives Communicate priority actions Create a method that is simple to replicate for other station areas Businesses Investors Residents Governments Image credits:

50 Purpose of the TOD Readiness Analysis Provide a tool that helps each station area assess its strengths and opportunities, and identify immediate next steps to make them more ready for TOD Compile a quantitative analysis with measures that matter to the full spectrum of TOD interests Use the analysis to better understand the area s strengths and opportunities from a holistic perspective. Articulate concrete action items to build upon strengths and take advantage of opportunities to achieve measurable outcomes. Serve as a preliminary marketing piece for garnering developer and lender interest in each station area. It is not a comparison of one station area against another. Instead, the analysis will guide actions that benefit each station area individually, recognizing each station area s vision and function is different and unique.

51 TOD Readiness Analysis Holistic perspective Full spectrum of TOD interests Identify concrete action items and immediate next steps Guide actions for each station area individually Garnering developer and lender interest Factors Geographic Demographic Economic Institutional

52 How ready is a station area for transit oriented development? MEASURES OF TOD READINESS

53 Physical Measures Block Size Path Connectivity Bicycle Comfort Transit Travel Shed Walkability Land Use Composition Economic Measures Recent Development Activity Activity Density Redevelopment Potential Real Estate Values Percent Higher Income Level Households TOD Readiness Social Measures Change in Income Levels & Educational Attainment Presence of Affordable Housing Existing Transit Ridership Propensity Housing & Transportation Affordability Index Community Gathering Places Civic or Educational Uses Political Measures Supportive Planning Context Local Leadership Public Investment

54 Using the Measures Evaluate the readiness level for each measure Indicate the direction for improvement Identify the key strengths and opportunities Develop priority action items to improve readiness Smaller Block Sizes Land Use Composition Walkability Block size Transit Travel Shed Increase Connectivity Path Connectivity Bicycle Comfort Develop a robust bicycle network Prioritize the pedestrian Assemble vacant and underutilized parcels
