So much traffic, a little more crime than usual, up and coming trendy area for younger professionals, a lot of noise from new construction

Chamblee is a growing city undergoing much change. It has one dedicated County Senior center and is home to Mercy Care, a low cost health clinic, and Senior Connections, a Meals on Wheels delivery and prep center for which I volunteer. There are a number of senior residents living in the subdivisions in town, and a community group of seniors that the City runs. However there is not much work or many social amenities directed specifically to seniors. Chamblee is becoming more walkable and is drawing a broader range of eateries and entertainment options.

Most seniors will not go into the State of Georgia 62+ Program for the state college/universities and the technical colleges because of young people in the classrooms. Transportation could be better because of cost. There will be plenty of facilities for seniors at a cost. The weather is general good but some days in winter could be extremely cold with some snow & ice. The senior population is growing in the metro-Atlanta area. Sidewalks are an issue, so few, for elderly and disabled. Chamblee has one technical school and no colleges & universities within its borders.
