Letter: Making a better Peabody

(Continued)

Finally, an important but under-discussed issue is the ability for Peabody’s seniors to find quality housing within a reasonable time frame. As the head of the charity, Making a Difference in Peabody, I routinely aid and work with seniors. You may be surprised, but it can take up to three years for the elderly to be approved for senior housing. At the local level, there are certain measures to help give them the peace of mind they deserve. As your representative, I’d work with all involved in the permitting process, helping cut red tape to accelerate the approval process for senior housing. Moreover, I’d recommend quality, reasonably priced properties for the city to acquire for our seniors.

Over the coming months, I hope to listen to your concerns and further discuss the solutions necessary to improving our city.
