Crisis center should relocate

By Karin Quass-Hauring | Aug 28, 2014

To the editor:

I am writing in response to your article on August 27 on the front page of The Fairfield Ledger titled “Crisis stabilization home models successful.”

While not against this type of center to help our neighbors, friends and families in need of mental health support, I am questioning the choice of location.

My opposition to the crisis center in my neighborhood (my home is directly situated across the street on Burlington Avenue) is as followed:

1. No adequate parking for staff and possible emergency vehicles.

2. Zoning is residential. I do not think due diligence has been executed by Tenco and the real estate firm that sold the house concerning the zoning.

3. Our quality of life in the neighborhood will be diminished due to cars coming and going all hours of the day.

4. Property values will plummet. We already had a sale of a neighboring property fall by the wayside.
