    A Road Map for Age-Friendly Communities 

    America is aging: The most dramatic change is in the 65-74 year old age category with the age wave of the Baby Boomer generation with far-reaching economic and socio-political consequences. Population aging is viewed as a challenge and burden, especially, for communities unprepared for this demographic change. Real progress will occur when challenge is transformed to opportunity. APA’s Aging in Community Policy Guide can help frame planning solutions that foster new conversations, new coalitions, and new shared strategies that link the generations successfully to build livable communities for all. In this session, planners will explore a community's capacity to foster aging-in-community in transportation, housing and community supports and connections: three of the six Guiding Policies in the Policy Guide.

    Economic Development for Everyone: Creating Jobs, Growing Businesses, and Building Resilience in Low-Income Communities 

    How do we create employment, grow businesses, and build greater economic resilience in our low-income communities? How do we create economic development for everyone, everywhere – including rural towns, inner-city neighborhoods, aging suburbs, and regions such as Appalachia, American Indian reservations, the Mexican border, and the Mississippi Delta – and not just in elite communities? Miller's forthcoming book Economic Development for Everyone (Routledge, June 2017) collects, organizes, and reviews much of the current research available on creating economic development in low-income communities: both the challenges these communities face in the current environment, as well as diverse ideas and opportunities for sustainable economic development.
