What do Portland, Japan, the Tuomoto Atoll and the MAX line to Gresham have in common?  Paddy Tillett.  A tall man with a ready smile, he defies Northwest casual in favor of a bowtie, which may be in homage to his origins in the British Isles. Paddy has helped to shape the vibrant city of Portland, Oregon with his knowledge of transit-oriented development and urban design here and across the globe.

Communities throughout Illinois and the United States aren't prepared for an aging society, a challenge communities will face as the U.S. population ages, which is why AARP developed the Livability Index Tool to allow users the ability to determine the livability of their neighborhood and community. AARP defines livability within a community as a safe and secure location that has affordable and appropriate housing and transportation options, and has supportive community features and services, which allows for residents to age in place and engage in the community’s civic, economic, and social life.
