CORNELIUS – In his living room Jack Hart has a comfortable recliner, a lovely couch and an artisan table, but his favorite piece of furniture is a small, wooden Windsor chair he bought for $15 at the Habitat ReStore in Cornelius. It was in pieces when he got it, and he meticulously repaired it using only clamps – the way it should be done, he said.

That chair is just one of the many pieces of furniture Mr. Hart, 93, has repaired and restored over the past seven years.

The program designates a town as having a quality of life that the older community desires. The potential benefits for making a town attractive to retirees is substantial: accumulated wealth brought into the area, developers attracted to build affordable housing and senior facilities, existing retirees remain in the community.
