Lots of people move to cities, but leave shortly thereafter. Young people are transient. Older populations like to grow roots and establish communities. A cultivated sense of community could attract and retain talent, because the big city can be a lonely place no matter your age. Seniors could anchor neighborhoods keeping the best and brightest from moving away, making stronger economies and workforces. Elderly-centric cities are good business and design. Cities shouldn’t leave a prized resource like seniors out of the picture. Especially when they could be at the center of it.
