No plan to improve mass transit; poor part time job market; high property taxes despite no state income tax; Older, unimproved rentals are overpriced

Austin is growing really fast, but is still concerned with taking care of our elderly. Lots of activities for young and old alike.

Provisions made for the elderly to commute on public transportation as well as to enter certain buildings. More can be done to provide easier employment opportunities for those who are seniors but still have the capacity to contribute to the society.
