C'ville Area Alliance for an Age-Friendly Community

An umbrella organization created to boost awareness of senior issues has been formally endorsed by both the Albemarle County Board of Supervisors and Charlottesville City Council.
“By 2024, our area will have one in four people over the age of 65,” said Marta Keane, CEO of the Jefferson Area Board for Aging and an organizer behind the new Charlottesville Area Alliance.
Data from the Weldon Cooper Center for Public Service at the University of Virginia projects the number of people over 65 in the Thomas Jefferson Planning District Commission will climb to 57,013 in 2030. That’s up from 24,488 in the year 2000.
