27 Opposition to ADUs Decreases in Property Values and Neighborhood Character Parking Water/Utilities Overwhelm Existing Infrastructure

29 How Will This Effect Your Business or Where You Work or Personally? Will there be more people driving on the road during the day and less at night? Will there be more people going to lunch vs. dinner? How can I be more sensitive to my employee who is caring for an elderly parent? Will there be more people willing to volunteer? What kind of incentives could I provide older volunteers? What type of civil and criminal issues are seniors dealing with? How can I help?

30 How Will This Effect Your Business or Where You Work or Personally? What can individuals and employers do to help an older person stay in their home? Are the sidewalks around my business or house suitable for people to walk in order to catch a bus? How is the lighting in my parking lot? Is it conducive to people feeling safe? Are there enough classes/civic activities for older people to be engaged? What are the housing options in the city?
