Creating a More Aging-Friendly Community: A Call to Action!

This is not a Reston-specific event, but RCA believes it is of interest to our citizens, and we are presenting it as a public service.
Fairfax County projects a dramatic increase in its older population. Between 2005 and 2030, the county expects the 50 and over population to increase by 40 percent and the 70 and over age group by 88 percent.
The Fairfax County Board of Supervisors, together with the Fairfax Area Commission on Aging, is working to continue progress toward creating a more livable community for its older residents.

This summer, they are hosting community forums throughout the county to hear what residents have to say. Focus areas include housing & transportation; easy access to services and; healthy lifestyles & community engagement.

This is your chance to share your ideas on what we need to do together to ensure the county continues to be a livable, lifelong community for its growing older population.

Once the community forums are completed, a new Fairfax 50+ Action Plan will be developed.

Visit to link to the registration page and find additional forums as they are scheduled. You can also register by calling 703-324-5411, TTY 711. If you cannot attend a forum and would like comment, call us or email us at
