  • In Chula Vista, people aged 55 and older have experienced an increase in pedestrian and bicyclists injuries since 2012
  • The population of older adults is projected to grow by 194 percent in San Diego County from 2012 to 2035
Visuals include the Norman Park Senior Center, a proclamation ceremony with Mayor Salas and Councilmember Galvez, and seniors utilizing the Center.
