5. Increase housing opportunities for seniors and the elderly.

  • Encourage affordable housing for the elderly through alternative residential programs such as life-care, assisted, or congregate living arrangements.
  • Evaluate different programs for providing elderly housing.
  • Explore expanding the number of rental opportunities for senior and elderly residents.
  • Encourage development of housing units that can easily be adapted or modified for handicap accessibility as needed.
  • Other options to improve elderly housing include utilizing town-owned land for housing sites and utilizing the senior center for outreach and counseling.
