The reasons I confess that the area in which I Live is Age Friendly is because: The age group is from Infancy to 90+ years. The Community is yet a Farming and Neighboring Community. I have live in this Community for nine-years. I Love Living in This Community because Everyone Is Important.
General livability, care, and general engagement.
The overall livability of the city is excellent. There is excellent transportation system in place for seniors. There are also excellent community services, such as the senior center and Monroe aquatic center. The school system is good for families, with excellent public, charter school and vocational school options. The community offers excellent free entertainment,such as Dancing in the street.
My community is a quite place where all the neighbors know each other and keep each other safe. There's always a patrol car driving around.
