City seeks input on transit for elderly, disabled

The City of Evanston is asking residents to complete a survey that should lead to policies that would help elderly residents stay in their homes as they age.

Specifically, the survey, which the city estimates should take about 15 minutes to complete, would provide input on the mobility needs and transportation patterns of older adults and people with disabilities.

It’s all part of an $85,000 grant the city received from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Administration for Community Living.

Survey responses will be used to help identify improvements and strategies that will continue to allow individuals to age in place in Evanston, the city stated in a news release.

Results of the survey are expected to be published in the city’s TP4All Report in mid-2017.

Deadline for submitting the survey to the city is March 31.

A copy of the survey is available online.
