Jamesburg residents fearful as group home prepares to open
(02/21/05) JAMESBURG ? Some residents in Jamesburg say they would rather move than deal with the opening of a group home for former psychiatric patients.
The 20-bed facility is finally set to open on East Church Street in April after a nine-year legal fight. Many residents in Jamesburg say they are nervous about the prospect of having to live near the home?s occupants. Some have even put their homes up for sale because they feel the former patients will be a hazard to the surrounding community.
A spokesperson for the group home could not be reached for comment.
