I do not believe this city is age friendly. There is no public transportation. To shop they would need to either have a car or have someone take them to the grocery store or general shopping. There are no restaurants nearby, but there are parks and trails.

This is not an age friendly community. Shopping and restaurants are quite a distance from actual living areas, so a person would need transportation if they do not drive themselves.

I have only lived here a short time but in my opinion it does not seem to be age friendly. If you don't or can't drive you are pretty much home bound.
