Creating strategies to develop viable, livable communities for aging Hoosiers means getting creative with the ways you engage partners, implement plans, and achieve positive change. That's why we're getting creative this fall with a new approach to an Aging in Place training.

When: Thursday October 11, 2012 from 8:00 AM to 4:30 PM EDT

What: Aging in Place: Creating Livable Communities for Older Hoosiers
A full-day workshop presented by Philip B. Stafford, Director of the Center on Aging and Community at the Indiana Institute on Disability and Community.

We are bringing together community development practitioners like you to introduce the myriad strategies that communities can develop to enable elders and others to thrive in communities that support physical, mental, and social health. In this year's session, participants will focus on the policy implications surrounding housing and mobility issues, with special attention to creating environments that bring together old and young persons for their mutual benefit. Also, participants will provide input on the planning group's previous two days and learn more about how Lifetime Community Districts can transform cities, towns, and neighborhoods.

Cost: IACED Members - $20; Non-Members - $30. Parking is free, and breakfast, lunch, and afternoon drinks will be provided.

Sponsored by Indiana Association for Community Economic Development, with support from the Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority.

Prior Activities on October 9 and 10: During days 1 and 2, using concepts firmly rooted in comprehensive community development, an interdisciplinary group of planners, public officials, neighborhood leaders, developers, public health experts and others, will spend two days creating a model Lifetime Community District (LCD) surrounding the Bloomington "B-Line" trail. An LCD is a zoning and public policy innovation created to incentivize and influence community development and redevelopment initiatives that promote livability for all ages and abilities.
