QUESTION ADDRESSED TO MORINVILLE COUNCIL AND MAYORAL CANDIDATES
During the all candidate forum I heard the majority of the discussion and questions around youth, teens and young families. Having studied demographics many times during my working career and looking around in Morinville, I would estimate that the “senior” group will soon equal if not surpass the young families. As we age, and can no longer manage our homes, we will be looking for more senior type housing/condos/apartments to buy and/or rent as we may not quite be ready for the lodge. My question to all candidates is what would our new town council do to plan for the future of seniors in terms of living accommodations and recreation?
