The Senior Services Commission is a nine member group of residents appointed by the President and Board of Trustees. The Commission is concerned with all financial and operational senior citizen housing matters relating to Crestwood Place, a village-owned senior citizen housing development. One of the Commissioners must live at Crestwood Place. The group conducts hearings as necessary in the event that a resident has a concern with the operation or condition of any village-owned senior housing as well.
Besides senior housing, the Commission is also responsible for making recommendations to the board of trustees for the adoption and amendment of ordinances relating to senior citizens, which may include the development of programs and services, possibly in cooperation with other public and private agencies, for the benefit of senior citizens here in Northbrook.
