SPUR Evening Symposium: Communities for Aging: Strategies for urban living for seniors

"A 2009 American Association of Retired People survey found that 89

of Smith Group, Byron Kuth of Kuth Ranieri Architects, James
Canton
of Global Futures and Nader Shabahangi from Agesong.
Moderated by Kenneth Caldwell."
