Seniors Take Action, Town Repairs Sidewalks

Until recently, residents of the five Brookline Senior Housing developments often found that a walk to the market or the library could be hazardous due to broken, uneven sidewalks. Thanks to an innovative project initiated by BrooklineCAN and involving several Brookline organizations, many of those sidewalks have already been repaired.  As a result of this project, Brookline residents of senior housing have an easier time walking to the market. Equally important, they have gained the ability to organize and advocate for issues that affect the quality of their lives. And working together, they have made walking in Brookline safer for seniors and for residents of all ages.
