[ARCHIVED] Vitalocity Workshop on Community for a Lifetime Sept. 30th to Oct. 2nd

From September 30-October 2, Apple Valley will be the location of a Vitalocity! workshop. Vitalocity! is an initiative to integrate age-friendly design principles into cities’ social and physical infrastructure.

Please join us on September 30th as we explore how to make Apple Valley a Community for a Lifetime.

From September 30-October 2, the City of Apple Valley is partnering with a team of experts on aging for a Vitalocity! workshop. Vitalocity! is an initiative to integrate age-friendly design principles into cities’ social and physical infrastructure. The outcome of this workshop is to develop a “roadmap” for an aging-friendly Apple Valley.

The City of Apple Valley is hosting the opening workshop on Tuesday, September 30th from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Apple Valley Senior Center. This day will focus on the experiences of City residents, and whether they think Apple Valley is an age-friendly community. The City is looking for residents to share their experiences, pictures, and ideas about Apple Valley, and Vitalocity! is offering $100 prizes to the eight best responses. All Apple Valley residents are invited and encouraged to attend the Tuesday event. A light lunch will be served to attendees.

The second and third days of the workshop will be geared towards the experts in the field of aging and will be held at another location in Apple Valley.

Participants in the Minnesota workshop include: the City of Apple Valley, world leading retirement communities, senior housing and services experts, experts in nutrition and leading technology companies. Members of the team include representatives from the International Federation on Aging, Minnesota-based Ecumen, Kendal Corporation, BusinessLab, IBM, Perkins Eastman and Sodexo.
