Tonight: Planning for aging population


Don Weden, a Santa Clara County planner, will speak at the new Menlo-Atherton High School performing arts center at 7 p.m. Thursday, March 25, about land-use planning to accommodate an aging population. The center is at 555 Middlefield Road in Atherton.

Mr. Weden focuses on "what we can do to adapt our cities to assure that our growing senior population -- and others in the community -- can live active, interesting and productive lives, without having to drive or own a car," Menlo Park resident Patricia Boyle writes in an e-mail.

Ms. Boyle sits on the city's Housing Commission, which is a sponsor of the event along with the League of Women Voters.

Great topic of interest to us Boomers and Beyond. I do wish events appeared sooner in The Almanac Express so we could plan to attend those of interest to us. There have been at least a dozen programs I would have attended had I known about them several days before they occurred. Maybe others feel the same way.

You gotta love research that promotes a political/developer agenda, in this case, dense housing along the train tracks and El Camino. No thanks. I don't know about you -- presumably you're all getting older too -- but I hope someday to have a home with more land and less noise, which is not at all what this particular faction is promoting.

Always ask yourself: who stands to profit?

Sorry, but further commenting on this topic has been closed.
