In 2018, the Clark County Commission on Aging focused on transportation, especially for people 65 and older. Transportation allows residents of all ages and abilities to connect with others and maintain independence and is the hallmark of a livable community.
The commission invited experts to speak on the specific topics below. Members discussed the topics and answered questions from the audience.
The purpose was to educate and raise awareness about what future transportation and mobility challenges and solutions might be to help Clark County’s older citizens age in their own home and familiar neighborhood for as long as they can.
They concluded the year with an annual report with findings and recommendations and a summit that brought community leaders together to discuss some of the biggest transportation challenges facing Clark County's growing older population.
The recording of the summit, along with the presentations can be found on the summit's webpage.
