Aging in Atlanta, a topic extensively covered in the AJC in recent years, is the subject of a study in Forsyth County.

Forsyth seeks input for aging study

Forsyth County officials want to know what residents think about their housing preferences for staying in the county post-retirement.

It ties in the county’s comprehensive plan adopted earlier this year, which identified aging in place and multi-generational housing as an important future priority. The resulting Forsyth County Demographics Study for Aging In Place is looking at such things as projected population growth over the next two decades, changes in the generational profile during that period and how such changes will relate to the county’s housing supply and public revenues and cost.

Residents wanting to offer input as the study proceeds can complete an online survey that’s available on the county website at forsythco.com until Dec. 3. Those interested can also fill out a hard copy of the survey at the county administration building, senior service center locations and libraries.

A public information session covering initial demographic results is set for 3 to 5 p.m. Nov 29 at the administration building, 110 E. Main St., Cumming.
