Yesterday, I met with the Senior Citizen Group in Indian community at Bond Park to address a number of issues and there were over 60 residents from Morrisville there.
The main area of concern was infrastructure/road congestion and the need for better bus service from Morrisville to other municipalities in Wake County.
I explained our discussion of a Transit Task Force in an effort to come up with new sources of funding for our road issues, along with the need for A Wake County transit plan, which would call for expanded bus service throughout the County.
Finally, I updated the community on our CIP Plan, and how we needed a Senior Center in Morrisville, for our residents, and growing retirement community. There had been some interest in developing a Senior Retirement community from a developer and that this community would have a global focus. Much interest on that topic as well.
Thanks for inviting me to speak at this event and I do look forward to continued disucssion with this community on these issues.
