Walkable Streets for Seniors

Track: Aging in Place Track

Losing the ability to drive shouldn’t be the moment when seniors lose their freedom. This session argues that planners need to start helping people make the transition from suburbs to walkable neighborhoods at the “empty nester” stage so that they are already aging in place come retirement. Learn techniques for renovating cities into safe spaces that senior pedestrians will use, including using curb radii that slow turning cars and non-slip sidewalk materials.
