A small group of residents at Islington 2000/2010 is working at a grassroots level to make our community more connected.

The Islington Vertical Village is part of the “Naturally Occuring Retirement Community” movement that has gaining popularity in the face of our aging populations. The NORC idea is to leverage the experience, skills and wisdom of  older residents  into making buildings like ours into local hubs for all the support residents will need to thrive as they age.

Islington Vertical Village asked residents to indicate what they would like to see happening at Islington 2000/2010 going forward. This word cloud indicates what jumped out as the most important.

Next the group will meet with interested residents to get a sense of who is ready to step up and advance some of these things.  This will happen in the party room on August, 16th from 2 to 4 pm and again from 7 to 9 pm. Remember to wear a mask.
