The Issues:

  • Growing Aging Population (Starting in 2012, about 10,000 people will become 65 every day)
  • Economic and Social Impacts
    • Housing and Mobility
    • Services
    • Family
  • Life Transitions

Source: Civic Ventures

slide3

The Challenges:

  • Desire to age in place is high. But sprawl is unfriendly to seniors
  • Urban Opportunities and Constraints
  • High expenses in housing, transportation, food and health care (65% of combined income)
  • Search for and study alternatives
    • Local
    • County
    • Region
  • The Objectives:
  • Education/Outreach
  • Affect Policies:
    • Housing
    • Land use
    • Mobility
  • The Approach:
  • Study case studies and concepts

Types of transitions with impact on/by built environment:

Retirement(no longer needing to live near work with the freedom to act upon other values that move up in importance)

Changes in health status, aging changes or onset of disability

Dissolution of a family union such as divorce or loss of spouse

Need or desire to be geographically located next to children or family

Financial status change

The Players:

Thousand Oaks Council on Aging

Ventura County Civic Alliance (VCCA)

Conejo Future Foundation

Ventura County Quality of Life Task Force (professionals seeking to better design senior services for Baby Boomers)

Ventura County Area Agency on Aging (VCAAA)

Local Business Leaders and Concerned Residents

slide6

The next steps as defined in prior presentation:

Identify poverty pockets

Identify potential services for seniors within subject boundary

Identify potential opportunity for in-fill or adaptive rehab sites

Create concept vision of future development

Identify policies targeted for reform

Advocate reform through public outreach

Technical steps for this presentation:

Clean up graphic and data presentation

Search for and research new data to incorporate into presentation, i.e. parcel maps and topographical maps

Explore other features in GIS

slide7

Analysis:

  • Senior population distribution in 3 categories:
  • 55-64 (second largest group)
  • 65-74 (smallest group)
  • 75 and over (largest group)
  • There are subtle differences in population distribution, with the largest concentration of 75 and over in Thousand Oaks and Oxnard
slide8

Poverty:

Although considered a relatively affluent county, Ventura is not immune to pockets of poverty level, especially among seniors, who are more dependent on access and mobility than others

slide9

Case Study-Thousand Oaks

  • One can observe that in some tracts some 75-and-older groups are congregated closer to town than the other two groups.
  • In Thousand Oaks there are more seniors in the 55-64 group than the 65-74 or 75 and over groups.
slide10

City-wide Analysis:

  • Identification of key landmarks:
  • Hospital
  • Emergency Response
  • Retail and Services
  • Public Transit
  • Civic (Library, Post Office, DMV, City Hall, Performance Center)
slide11

City-wide Analysis:

  • Review of poverty situation:
  • There are areas of poverty concentration in more urbanized sections
  • Some areas around Thousand Oaks Blvd indicate need of focus. TO Blvd is an area of opportunity
slide13

Case study 1: Thousand Oaks Blvd

Primarily commercial corridor

Numerous retail and commercial services

Current Specific Plan under consideration

Opportunities for Mixed Use redevelopment

Potential densification

Proximity to various Civic and public amenities

Potential future downtown

slide14

Advocate change of land use policies to promote walkable neighborhoods through adaptive rehabilitation of existing building stock

slide17

Case study 2: Newbury Park

Explore opportunities for redevelopment of in a neighborhood

slide19

Modeling:

  • Objective: Create model to buffer important landmarks and assess proximity of population to such landmarks. They are:
  • Hospital
  • Emergency Response
  • Retail and Services
  • Public Transit
  • Civic (Library, Post Office, DMV, City Hall, Performance Center)
slide20
