Villagers are working on ways to make their town a better place for older residents.

In coming years, there will be a rapid growth in the population aged 65 and over as the Baby Boomer generation heads into retirement.

While the national trend may not reflect the reality of every single municipality in the country, a group of Ridgewood residents is looking to make a difference in its own community, to make the village a better place for residents to grow old.

“We want to bring older people into the conversation as we plan for the future,” said Sheila Brogan of the Age-Friendly Ridgewood Initiative.
