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.

The suburbs are aging, but the city of New Haven may just continue to get younger and younger. We may be “silver tsunami proof.” Of course, there will still be huge changes as the suburban population, transit riders, etc., get older.
