All of us in the Terry Fox elementary school area were given a letter from the City Of Abbotsford on March 12/2008 stating that they have received an application for a Drug/Alcohol Rehab house for the property at 2946 Babich Street. We feel that this is not the type of establishment we want in our neighborhood, especially less than 500 feet from an elementary school and park. We have no problem with the people who are trying to get off drug and alcohol dependency but we do have a problem with the people these types of houses attract, mainly the "friends" of these people, drug and alcohol addicted individuals and other transient types who will congregate in our neighborhood. With this added congregation of "less desirable" individuals we expect to see an increase in property theft and damage as well as needles and other drug and alcohol related paraphernalia left in our school, park and neighborhood. To us this is totally unacceptable and unreasonable so we encourage everyone in the Terry Fox school area who agrees with us to please sign our petiton. Thank you, Concerned Terry Fox area homeowners.
