New Haven’s senior population is set to skyrocket. What’s a city to do?
That’s the question that the Board of Alders Human Services Committee will tackle on Thursday evening in City Hall.
With a generation of baby boomers headed for retirement, the city will have to figure out how to handle an increase in its aging population—a.k.a. a “silver tsunami.”
Fair Haven Alder Santiago Berrios-Bones called for “a public hearing and workshop to discuss the projected dramatic growth in the senior citizen population and implications for city policy and planning.”
The hearing starts at 6 p.m. in the Aldermanic Chamber.
