Yolo County Age Friendly Communities Town Hall Series Announced
October 11, 2019
What would it take for Yolo County to be a community for people of all ages to live and age in place, in other words, to become “Age Friendly”? People of all ages are invited to attend a local community conversation to envision an Age Friendly Yolo County and to hear from our local elected officials and leaders on current and future activities and opportunities for action. A series of four town halls will be held:
Winters. October 30, 9am-11:30am at the Winters Community Center, Railroad St. Speakers include Assemblymember Cecelia Aguiar-Curry and Senator Bill Dodd.
West Sacramento. November 1, 8:15am-11am, West Sacramento Community and Senior Center. Speakers include Senator Richard Pan, Supervisor Oscar Villegas, and West Sacramento Mayor Christopher Cabaldon.
Davis. November 4, 2pm-4pm, Davis Senior Center. Speakers include Supervisor Jim Provenza and Davis Mayor Pro Tem Gloria Partida.
Woodland. November 5, 9am-11am, Woodland Community and Senior Center.
Each town hall will address age friendly programs, services, and opportunities available through four levels of government:
Federal. How should Older Americans Act funds be prioritized to meet the needs of the region’s aging population?
State. How can the California Master Plan for Aging serve aging residents of Yolo County?
County and Cities. What would make Yolo County and Yolo County cities Age Friendly, Livable Communities? How do we make that happen?
Participants will have an opportunity to ask questions of elected officials, provide their input, and discuss a vision for an age friendly community.
The town halls are co-sponsored by Yolo Healthy Aging Alliance, the Agency on Aging-Area 4, the Yolo County Commission on Aging and Adult Services, and the Aging and Senior Citizen Commissions of Woodland and Davis and are supported by a grant from The SCAN Foundation.
No RSVP is necessary. For more information contact Sheila Allen at (530) 757-5583 or Sheila.email@example.com.
