ORANGE COUNTY, NC (July 11, 2016)—The Orange County Department on Aging, and its Advisory Board, are excited to announce the kick-off of the next Master Aging Plan.  To get started, we will host public meetings during July and August at key locations around the County.

These public meetings will be an opportunity to celebrate the accomplishments of the previous five-year plan and to invite resident input that will set new directions for the next Master Aging Plan.  To advance our planning process, we are pleased to announce that Orange County is the first NC county to join AARP’s Network of Age-Friendly Communities. As such, we will be a part of a nation-wide effort to transform our neighborhoods and communities into age-friendly places.  

At each public meeting, attendees will have the opportunity to share their ideas and vision about how to make Orange County a great place to age well.  Janice Tyler, Director of the Department on Aging says, “Never in modern history have we lived this long.  Orange County is already a great place to age, but we can make it even better. The Master Aging Plan provides that opportunity.  We want to continue to develop new models in all areas, including how we live, how we die and how we connect with each other on a daily basis. The Master Aging Plan is a community effort and we hope you will join us in sharing your thoughts and vision for the future.”

Please join us for one of the following public meetings. No registration is necessary. All events are open to the public.
