Dr. Rosenbloom will expose the conflicts between the needs of different members of the community, differences often hidden or ignored and that frequently break along age and class lines. Older people, for example, could benefit substantially from communities that are more walkable even if they are not also rich in stores, social and recreational facilities, and medical offices. Dr. Rosenbloom will explore the reasons why planners may be unwilling to expend resources on aging-in-place neighborhoods if those places are not also high density with mixed land uses.
