COMMITTEE ON AGING
The Committee on Aging (CoA) was established by City Council in 2018 for the following reasons:
To assist the Parks & Recreation Department with the implementation of the Temple City Senior Master Plan (SMP).
To advise and assist Parks & Recreation staff regarding activities, programs and services for seniors.
To inform the Parks & Recreation Commission and the City Council about programs and services benefiting seniors.
To evaluate existing senior programs and services annually.
To advocate for legislative issues that affect the lives of older adults and to disseminate information that will enable seniors to participate actively in the democratic process.
The CoA consists of nine (9) members appointed by the City Council. The current members of the CoA are as follows:
*The Parks & Recreation Commission and City Council shall each appoint one of its members to serve on the CoA as a non-voting representative who does not count towards quorum.
The CoA meets quarterly (January, April, July, October) on the fourth Tuesday of the month at 6:30 p.m. in the Live Oak Park Annex Building. Special meetings may be scheduled at other times as required.
The CoA held its first meeting on April 23, 2019. They approved the 2019/2020 meeting schedule; received an overview of the Temple City Senior Master Plan as well as existing senior programs and services offered by the City; and they formed three working subcommittees: 1) Marketing; 2) AARP Age-Friendly Communities; and 3) Funding. The next meeting, which is open to the public, will be held on July 23, at 6:30 p.m. in the Live Oak Park Annex Building (10144 Bogue Street).
