Just like around the nation Pitkin County’s population of seniors is expected to grow dramatically over the coming years. Already, 20 percent of the people living here are age 60 and older. By 2030, that group is expected to grow by 75 percent. The county is preparing by investigating what’s needed to accommodate this growing demographic. Aspen Public Radio’s Marci Krivonen reports.
On Tuesday, seniors from around Pitkin County joined elected leaders and other community members in Aspen for a presentation on aging. Curt Strand was among the participants.
