Senior citizens want to downsize

By March 18, 2011

I was quite surprised by the negative view expressed by two of the commissioners in response to the presentation by Choices for Health Aging at the Davis Senior Citizens Commission meeting earlier this month.

The best thing Davis could do is provide for its growing population of senior citizens who have a desire to downsize into housing that is designed to meet their needs. This would free up housing for young buyers, thereby helping the school district. And by turning over houses that are under 1970s property tax, it will boost city revenues.

As Davis expats living in Winters, we would welcome such a community, just as we welcomed The Palms.
