Hi everyone -
I'm sorry I missed the inaugural meeting on July 11. I've just read through the minutes. It sounds like you had a great first meeting and have a great group of people to work on the variety of issues at hand.
I was wondering if any of you could help me with a reference or two. I am writing a policy brief for the J of the American Geriatrics Society describing built environment and mobility for older adults policy issues. I wrote that city and transportation planners are aware of the aging of the US population. My co-author suggested that this may not be the case. I did some web searching and found one report commission for the Texas state department of transportation. I found a document for the American Society of Planning Officials from 1961! It might be that it's planners in certain cities. But it seems appropriate to acknowledge their awareness. For a journal, though, I have to use report or article references.
thanks in advance!
