Private Practice Division

Re-Imagining Aging in Community

Speakers: Mildred Warner, Ph.D.; Candace Baldwin; Jana Lynott, AICP; Ramona Mullahey

An aging America has profound impacts on communities that we are only beginning to comprehend. There is also uncertainty about the ability of traditional societal institutions to adapt to the needs of an aging society as the complex web of roles, norms, values and structures are rapidly changing. Fiscal constraints demand new pathways to encourage resource investments that strengthen aging-in-community. In this session, speakers will focus on: (1) disruptive advances in transportation technology and a new paradigm of ‘mobility as a service’; (2) innovative new tools to finance the growth and meet the demands of an aging community; and, (3) smart initiatives for cost-effective service delivery to mobilize resources for developing more age-friendly environments. Participants will: 1. Explore community-based solutions that engage the social layer of the community to address service delivery for all ages 2. Learn how to harness disruptive technologies in our transportation system to create a new paradigm of ‘mobility as a service’; thus, expanding mobility to those disenfranchised under the current transportation framework, and 3. Examine new tools like the Age Strong fund and pay-for-performance options to finance aging communities and leverage strategic public/private investment while impacting whole person outcomes.

Understanding Rural Broadband Technology Options

Speaker: Dale Neef

Access to Smart City technologies and applications that high-speed broadband enables has become one of the most critical factors in any community’s economic development, affecting everything from our children’s education, to housing values, enterprise development, and health and welfare services for the poor and elderly. This is especially true in rural America, where access to high-speed broadband underpins any strategy for future economic growth – and is key to overcoming the “digital divide” and economic dislocation that continues to plague many of our small towns and rural communities across the nation. Many states have built extensive middle mile fiber networks, and for many rural communities the next step is to provide “last mile” connection for municipal, residential or commercial customers. But broadband speeds and dependability vary widely between DSL, cable, fiber, wireless and fixed wireless technologies, and can be dramatically affected by distance and terrain. Installation and running costs can vary enormously. So how do you know what “last mile” architecture and technologies are best for your rural community? This webinar, the second in our series on rural broadband issues sponsored by APA’s Technology Division, explores the key data drivers that are creating demand for greater bandwidth in rural communities, and describes the evolving technologies (wired and wireless) that are becoming available to meet that rapidly expanding data demand.

Native American Tribes, Law, and Planning

It will describe the legal basis of tribal sovereignty; the federal trust responsibility; self-determination; tribal land jurisdiction; and tribal demographics.
