What if I can no longer drive?
Dick Fleming, Vice Mayor
Many SaddleBrooke residents are unable to drive and the rest of us give thought to that eventuality – sometimes quite often. The focus of Senior Village at SaddleBrooke is “to enable residents to stay in their homes as long as they are able.” Transportation is essential to having a quality of life here.
We are canvassing SaddleBrooke and SaddleBrooke Ranch residents to answer the question: What if I can no longer drive? Our question for you is, “What transportation services should be provided in SaddleBrooke to enable you to stay in your home as long as you can?” The scope of our study will include transportation within SaddleBrooke and the Ranch; for example, to church, meetings and social events; and outside the SaddleBrooke communities to Catalina, Oro Valley and Tucson; for example, to doctor’s appointments, cultural activities and shopping. We will identify areas in which volunteers may be helpful and commercial services may be needed. And we will prepare a report of our findings and make it available to the community. “Neighbors helping Neighbors.”
We need you to give critical thought to the subject and to express them in an e-mail to [email protected] or by phone at 818-6784. Provide examples as necessary for clarification. Please provide name, address and phone number so we can contact you if we have need to discuss your ideas. Thank you for your contribution.
