An investment firm run by Bill Gates has put down $80 million to develop a planned community in Arizona. The 25,000 acres of land is about 45 minutes west of Phoenix, in an area called the West Valley. The community, which Gates wants to turn into a “smart city,” will be named Belmont.

    In this planned city will the elderly be a part of it? If so will they be able to afford living in such a city? I am not in the rich category so would I be considered for residency in this city? I would love to be in a “smart” city that could actually monitor older people so they could stay independent for as long as possible. I would love to be a part of such a city. However, I am not rich. IN fact after four years of not being able to find work because of my age I am now considering going into bankruptcy. I hope when planning this city you take into consideration folks who have hit hard time. BTW, I appreciate Bill Gates and his desire to help the world.Thank you
