Creating a More Aging-Friendly Community


Community pictures

 Let’s work together to continue creating a vibrant,
active community where people want to stay as they grow older!

 

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.

The Fairfax County Board of Supervisors, together with the Fairfax Area Commission on Aging, has been working with the community to create the 2014 Fairfax 50+ Plan. During the summer of 2013, over 800 people offered their ideas at forums held throughout the county.

Earlier in 2014, work teams composed of business and nonprofit representatives, community members and county staff reviewed the ideas expressed during the forums and then proposed initiatives for the Board of Supervisors' consideration. The initiatives were then posted on this page (see below) and a public comment period concluded on June 30, 2014.

Currently, the initiatives and public comments are under review by the Board of Supervisors. However, community activity around some of these initiatives has already begun. If you are interested in becoming involved with any of the initiatives, call 703-324-7746, TTY 711 or email DFSCommunity@fairfaxcounty.gov.
