Affordable Housing Breakfast Forum 

    • Population age 65 and older is expected to more than
      double by 2035, causing its share of total county
      population to rise from 10% to 21%
    • With significant aging of the county’s population projected by 2035, current demographic observations indicate that older residents will:
      • Live in more urban/central locations
      • Make housing choices that include more multi-family and rental arrangements
