We know that almost one in four residents of the Palos Verdes Peninsula is age 65 or older, and many seniors express a desire to remain independent and in this community as they age...The Palos Verdes Peninsula Village will provide such an opportunity for our local seniors.


My City Council colleagues and I support the vision and goals of the Palos Verdes Peninsula Village of providing a community for our seniors to age with dignity, purpose and engagement. We look forward to working with you as you bring the village to the Peninsula.
