People are very respectful of our older folks. There are lots of activities such as outdoor concerts, shopping, river pathways.

Meridian infrastructure is weak; it's essentially a bedroom community for Boise and there is NO public transportation, the streets have not been upgraded although most of the farmland to the South has been turned into new subdivisions, the entire area is not age-friendly when it comes to employment opportunities both full- and part-time, and infrastructure upgrades, if scheduled, are in the distant future. My particular neighborhood is very limited for walking, and because of the heavy traffic on the nearby 2-lane thoroughfare, you cannot ride a bicycle safely.

Boise and Meridian (which are the same city now) love growth and the growth of tax revenue in particular, but completely ignore (and/or proceed at a snails pace) infrastructure. Traffic is becoming difficult and there is NO public transportation in my area.
