Older people -- Services for, Neighborhood planning -- Oregon -- Hollywood, Community development -- Oregon -- Hollywood


The Hollywood Group investigated the Hollywood District to access how well its built environment and neighborhood services meet the needs of its substantial elder population. A goal was to connect the concerns expressed by seniors and their hopes for the future of the area to other visions for Hollywood currently being developed.

The Aging in Hollywood Project provides a senior perspective on such issues as community design, transportation and access, neighborhood services, housing choices and community involvement. Public outreach activities were the primary methods used to gather input from the Hollywood elder population on these issues. Methods used included focus groups, interviews, a neighborhood walk, and the development and application of a community design assessment form oriented to the needs of seniors.
