Langford open house focuses on seniors

Age-Friendly Langford initiative needs input from community

The City of Langford is once again asking the public for input on shaping the community in future.

This Saturday (July 19), an Age-Friendly Langford open house will allow seniors and non-seniors alike to voice suggestions and concerns with council and staff relating to outdoor spaces and buildings, community support and health services, social participation and inclusion, parks and recreation, transportation and housing.

Results from surveys filled out at the open house will help inform the city’s new Age Friendly Langford action plan. Starting this Friday (July 18), surveys can also be filled out online at cityoflangford.ca by first clicking on the Age-Friendly Langford feature box. The online feature will be available until Sept. 5.

The event happens from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Langford Legion, 761 Station Ave.
