The seniors of Waterford have a message for the rest of the town: slow down.
At a breakfast meeting last week with the town’s elected officials and seniors who live at the on Clark Lane, the major complaint was how people drive, according to several officials who went to the meeting. There is a crosswalk between the facility and a across the street, and people should stop to allow the seniors to pass, they said.
The seniors like to cross the street to volunteer at the nursing home, said Board of Education member Jody Nazarchyk, who was at the breakfast. The seniors are becoming increasingly apprehensive because drivers do not stop to let them cross Clark Lane, she said.
Some are even using walkers, Nazarchyk said. It would be nice if seniors felt safe crossing the street in a crosswalk, Town Clerk Bob Nye said, who was also at the meeting.
