I'm doing a project for my Psychology of Aging course in which I must plan a city for a variety of age groups. Since the class deals with the aging process and the elderly, that is going to be a particularly important part of my plan.
So far, I'm planning a town center with a park-like setting, retail and mixed-use buildings surrounding (including residential) and the city will grow out from the center in a grid. The great part of school projects is hearing these 2 phrases: no budget and no space restrictions!
I've been researching online and in libraries, but haven't found much info. about urban planning for the elderly population.
Any advice for resources or particular issues I should address in my plan?
I appreciate your feedback!
