Fairfax 50+ 2013 Forums - Ideas and Comments


The 2013 Fairfax 50+ Community Forums were focused on community involvement in continuing Fairfax County’s progress toward an aging-friendly community. The goals of the forums were:

  • to encourage ideas that would provide more opportunities for older adults to have meaningful engagement in the community, contributing their talents, skills and their positive contributions to the local economy;
  • to seek ideas for improving or maintaining the health and safety of the older population;
  • find creative ideas for increasing the availability and accessibility of transportation services, and coordinating the public and private services that are currently available;
  • seek ideas for enhancing, supporting, increasing older adult services in the community through individual, neighborhood, organizational, and business initiatives in partnership with the county, supported by the county, or wholly on their own;
  • seek ideas to improve available housing and increase the supply of housing that will provide people the opportunity to stay in their community of choice as long as they wish.

The publicly advertised forums were held across the county from June-August 2013. Each county district was represented and all supervisors participated in the forums or sent staff to represent them. Several forums were held with translators for non-English speaking participants. Some were held with non-English speaking residents in cooperation with Korean, Vietnamese, Farsi, Latino and Arabic community groups.
