ElderSource facilitates a senior focus group to discuss the development of additional programs for seniors in Flagler County and the function of an expanded community center in Palm Coast. As the city looks to its future and plans for a new facility, the City Council thought it would be in the best interest of the project to seek feedback, questions and commentary from the community before the project progressed any further. Any interested persons or parties are invited to attend and participate in this discussion. ElderSource is a non-profit agency designated by the state as the Area Agency on Aging and Aging & Disability Resource Center for Northeast Florida. The focus group is scheduled for 10 to 11:30 a.m. at the community wing of Palm Coast City Hall, 160 Lake Avenue, in Town Center. If you are unable to attend and would like to submit comments, please email [email protected] and these will be shared at the meeting.
