While no longer in publication, Capital Commons Quarterly, The Dynamics of Aging and Our Communities (CCQ), helped readers understand that an aging population has an impact on a community beyond traditional considerations. A few years ago, it would be common to consider the available supply of nursing homes and home care when measuring community assets with community needs. CCQ reminded readers that an aging population brought a dynamic aspect to the community that required additional consideration. Questions about workforce readiness, property taxes, and zoning were all addressed in CCQ, and we believe we expanded the dialog about aging. Decision makers, including elected officials and other community leaders, were required to consider how a growing population of older adults required complex, interwoven strategies founded on the principle that programs beneficial to older adults are typically equally beneficial to citizens of all ages.
