The American Association for Retired Persons recently released a new report, “What is Livable? Community Preferences of Older Adults.” The report, which surveyed 4,500 people 50 years and older, showed that increasingly, the nation’s older citizens don’t want to retire in an out-of-the-way community full of golf carts and bingo, rather, they want to stay in the homes and neighborhoods they’ve spent their lives in. That desire to “age in place” and have easy access to services and amenities has added to an already growing demand for walkable, urban, transit-oriented development.
