- Senior / Age Restricted Housing Communities: Senior / Age Restricted communities allow you to choose from single family homes, townhomes, or duplexes in an active adult community designed for people over the age of 55; the comfort of living in a home without having to maintain your yard and garden and the option to get help when you need it.

- Age Restricted Affordable Apartments: Age restricted apartment complexes follow HUD regulations which allows them to rent a high percentage of the apartment units to adults age 55+ or 62 and older who need affordable housing. These rental apartments give active adults the advantages of enjoying living independently and being part of a community of mature adults without having to maintain a house. Some complexes have amenities such as outdoor courtyards, community rooms and laundry facilities.
