Fairfax County Gets Grayer, More Diverse
Fairfax County settled into middle age during the past 10 years, becoming a stable but increasingly diverse suburb as its younger neighboring counties burgeoned, according to initial detailed numbers released last week based on the 2010 Census.
“As the portion of seniors increase that will increase pressure for more services that are of importance to older residents,” Farnsworth said.
“There will be more demands for senior enrichment programs, mass transit, senior programs. In eastern Fairfax inside the Beltway you are seeing more older communities and as time goes on more and more of Fairfax will resemble the demographics of these older suburbs. That will create a lot of pressure on government to fund those services.”
