City Council - 6.21.22 Item#07

 

California’s population is aging along with the baby boom: by 2030, about one in five residents in Riverside County will 65 years of age or older.

The City of Riverside has 66,615 people (21.9%) aged 45 to 64, and 26,242 people (8.6%) who are 65 years of age or older.

An AGE FRIENDLY COMMUNITY

emphasizes equity and inclusion in economic growth planning, however age is rarely part of that paradigm, study authors note.

“Including older people not only adds to economic strength but also provides benefits not targeted through other inclusivity steps (such as mentorship and training of younger workers) and has broad consumer impacts.”
