Senior center, housing get OK

Vote said to improve lives of town’s elderly

In a community where one out of four residents is older than 60, Canton Town Meeting last week approved measures that will improve the life of seniors in the coming years, local leaders said.

On Monday, voters approved $1.4 million for a new senior center at the former Knights of Columbus building on Pleasant Street. Then on Wednesday, voters approved a zoning change to allow a 200-unit senior housing development on Turnpike Street that would combine independent senior housing and assisted-living units.
