Vancouver, WA – The Three Creeks Advisory Council will meet Thursday, Jan. 12, from 10 a.m. to noon to discuss recommendations in the recently completed Aging Readiness Plan.
The meeting, which is open to the public, will be at the offices of the Clark Regional Wastewater District, 8000 N.E. 52nd Court, in the Hazel Dell area.
Clark County and its cities are anticipating the rapid aging of our residents. By 2030, one in four residents will be 60 or better and people older than 85 will increase by 50 percent. To prepare, the county appointed an Aging Readiness Task Force to assess the community’s readiness to support this aging population and identify needed resources and services. Ideas gleaned from workshops, surveys and best practices from other communities were used to develop the plan.
County staff will discuss the task force recommendations with the Three Creeks Advisory Council and seek the group’s support before the plan goes to the Planning Commission and Board of County Commissioners for consideration.
The Aging Readiness Plan is available at www.clark.wa.gov/aging.
In addition, the Jan. 12 meeting agenda includes an overview of the county’s Employment Zone streamlining efforts.
The Board of County Commissioners appointed the council to assist the county on transportation, land-use planning and related issues in the planning area, which includes unincorporated areas around Hazel Dell, Felida, Lake Shore, Salmon Creek and the fairgrounds.
