It seems some in P&Z want to plan on all seniors either moving or passing away?
Commissioner Cathleen Lindstrom cited a statistic from Connecticut Housing, a non-profit group, showing that about one-third of Monroe's population is age 60 and older. If new U.S. Census numbers echo that, Lindstrom noted it could mean big changes in town.

"Almost one-third of our population may be moving and younger families may be moving in," she said.

That could mean more demand for accessory apartments and greater impacts on the school system.
