City of Armadale meetings to address expected growth in aging population

CITY of Armadale is preparing for the future through a series of hands-on community consultations.

Armadale’s population aged 50 years and over is forecast to quadruple by 2026, rising from 7983 to 31,690.

To cater to residents, the City is looking to identify age-friendly features, barriers, and gather general suggestions for improvement from the community.
