Rehab Homes Get Approval From City Aldermen


A rehabilitation home for recent parolees has gotten a zoning change that will allow it to operate in a largely residential area.

 

Springfield aldermen approved the rezoning on a vote of 7-to-3. Alderman Gail Simpson says the Adulthood Transition Center operated by Calvin Jones is different from other similar facilities that have created controversy in recent months.

 

She says it has a good track record and provides meaningful services to residents.

 

But Alderman Frank Edwards… one of the three “no” votes… says recent bad experiences with other such homes leaves him skeptical.
