.I am a resident of senior housing, Burchfield Commons, Union Road, West Seneca. The letter in the Aug. 12 edition was total character assassination. To live in a senior apartment with People Inc. you must be 62 years of age or older. The article stated that our adult children sometimes live with us; this is totally untrue. Our adult children are approaching their senior years also. Many of them have had to leave Buffalo to live out of state for jobs. Apartment managers do enforce a senior-only policy. In order to be approved for People Inc. policy, you have to go through a screening process and an application process. Our seniors do not have substance or sexual addiction problems. Instead, they are playing BINGO, going to Bible study, Mass or working in the gardens on our beautiful patio. Thank you, People, Inc., for your beautifully designed and secure apartments; you have done so much for seniors.

.I see in the paper another article about the crosswalks on the playground on Harlem Road. Let’s come up with some ideas on how to save taxpayers some money, not just how to fix a crosswalk.

.Regarding the construction on Collins Avenue, the roads and sidewalks are beautiful; however, the lawns are a sight to see. We had lawns before the construction, and now we have weeds. I’m hoping the town is going to replant every resident’s lawn, especially ones who live on corners, where there is nothing but weeds.
