Agendas and notes
Clark County, Wash., like everywhere in the country, is anticipating a huge surge in the number of residents 60 or better. Today, one in six residents is 60 or older, and the number will increase to one in four by 2030.
With a silver tidal wave coming our way, the Board of Clark County Councilors appointed a 9-member Commission on Aging in June 2012. The commission is charged with implementing the 91 strategies in the Aging Readiness Plan to improve the community’s capacity to support its growing older population and ultimately benefit all ages.
Recognizing the vast task at hand, the commission established by-laws, a vision, mission and guiding principles (PDF) and work committees.
