The Parks and Recreation Commission, at the direction of the City Council, has undertaken a survey and assessment of current community services addressing the issues and needs facing local senior citizens. Through this Senior Citizen Needs Assessment, the Commission invited community groups, non-profits and field experts to present on areas of need for senior citizens so that deficiencies could be identified and appropriately addressed.   

Through the assessment, the City has identified opportunities for improvement and enhancing resources such as: 

  • Increasing collaboration between senior-focused community groups and service providers 
  • Education of seniors on potential scams 
  • Providing companionship and care 
  • Offering alternative solutions for technology 
  • Enhancing accessibility and mobility  
  • Diversifying the geography of events for seniors 
  • Establishing avenues for regular collaboration 
  • Centralizing and distributing information 

Following is a database of local resources available to seniors.  This database serves as the first phase of the database development.  The database will continue to grow and add new resources. Click on a button below to view our services:
