Sure, there are plenty of hip older people - well, 'plenty' might be pushing it - but in this context, the point being made is about long-term future. Not to be too harsh about it, but the older you are, the more your long-term future consists of either death or retirement (generally both, but I don't want to be a pessimist).

If we want Hamilton to be a great place to live in 2 or 3 decades, we need to attract people who will be alive and working in 2 or 3 decades.

By the way, "hip" is not a word that I typically use, but the NYT article did it first.
