The Fairfax 50+ Community Action Plan

Let’s create a more vibrant, active and supportive community for older adults!

 

Fairfax County projects a dramatic increase in its older population. Between 2005 and 2030, the county expects the 50 and over population to increase by 40 percent and the 70 and over population by 88 percent.

This is why the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors adopted The Fairfax County 50+ Community Action Plan in September 2014.

The Action Plan includes 31 initiatives regarding housing, transportation, community engagement, services, safety and health and long-range planning.

The initiatives were proposed during a countywide community development process, led by the Board of Supervisors and the Fairfax Area Commission on Aging, in the summer of 2013. Over 800 people offered their ideas at forums held throughout the county and via public comment periods.

But this is only the beginning. . . . Just as the community created the plan, it is now invited to implement it.

We hope you’ll take a look at the plan and then consider ways you, your neighborhood, faith community, service club, business or nonprofit agency can create a more vibrant, active and supportive community for older adults.

Call us at 703-324-5720, TTY 711 or email us at DFSFairfax50Plus@fairfaxcounty.gov to discuss ways to become involved.
