Vancouver, WA – The Commission on Aging will present results of its second year of work to the Board of County Commissioners Tuesday, June 17.

The nine-member volunteer panel will meet with the board 4:30-6 p.m. in the sixth-floor hearing room of the Public Service Center, 1300 Franklin St. The meeting is open to the public.

The Commission on Aging was formed in 2012 as an advocacy panel to help the county put into place 91 strategies identified in the Aging Readiness Plan, a community assessment by a countywide citizen task force.

At the meeting, commission members will describe work underway to implement some Aging Readiness Plan strategies. Highlights include an overview of projects such as Universal Green Design, Timebanking and TeleHealth.

As elsewhere around the United States, Clark County’s population of 60+ is projected to almost double by 2030. In 2010, the Board of County Commissioners appointed a task force to look at whether the county was ready for the aging boom, and if not, how it could be. The result was the Aging Readiness Plan, which focuses on housing, transportation, recreation, lifestyle choices, support services and civic and social engagement.

The June 17 meeting will be carried live on CVTV Channel 23 and on the web at www.cvtv.org. To see replay times, go to www.cvtv.org.
