Decatur’s interested in knowing what your long-term plans are.
When you think about the future, do you see yourself staying in your current Decatur home, moving to a smaller one or moving away entirely? What would make you want to stay longer? High speed internet? Better transportation options?
The city is taking a Lifelong Community survey, aimed at the needs of the city’s senior population, though the survey is available to anyone. To take the survey, click here.
“Decatur’s Lifelong Community Advisory Board invites the community to complete a survey to help plan the direction for Decatur’s future as a place where people of all ages and resources can live throughout their lifetimes,” the survey invitation says.
According to the most recent census data, about 16 percent of Decatur’s population, 3,158 people, are 60 years old or older. As of 2010, the biggest group was the residents aged 60 to 64 years, accounting for 5 percent of the city’s total population.
People who would prefer to take a hard copy of the survey should contact staff liaison Lee Ann Harvey at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 678-553-6548.
The survey deadline is Nov. 21.
