The Village of Park Forest has received a technical assistance award from the Metropolitan Mayors Caucus to participate in their “Aging in a Changing Region” program. The goal of this program is to undertake a planning process that will identify specific action steps and strategies that the Village and its stakeholder partners can implement to support the senior population in Park Forest. Note that this program is being provided to the Village free of charge as it is supported with funding from the RRF Foundation for Aging.
In order to obtain public input to this process, you are invited to participate in a pair of stakeholder workshops led by Chicago-based aging-in-community specialist Brad Winick of consulting firm Planning/Aging. The first workshop will be held:
Date: September 2, 2021
Time: 1 pm or 7 pm (choose one to attend), each will be no more than two hours in length and will contain the same content
1PM Session: Central Park Pavilion, 410 Lakewood Blvd, Park Forest
7PM Session: Dining on the Green, 349 Main St, DownTown Park Forest
The second workshop will be scheduled for a date in November, and you will receive an invitation to attend that workshop as well.
