Re: YAI application for a Group Home 5 Halsey Place

Dear Honorable Carl Fulgenzi and Members of the Town Board:

We the undersigned as residents of the Town of Mount Pleasant hereby

object to the approval of the application by YAI for a group home to be located at

5 Halsey Place on the following stated grounds:

FIRST: Pursuant to Mental Hygiene Law of the State of New York the

location of a group home at 5 Halsey Place will cause there to be a saturation of

group homes and/or similar uses within a confined geographical area such that the

existing character of the neighborhood shall be adversely impacted. In this regard

we request that the Town Board take notice of the inventory of group homes

and/or similar uses now existing in the community.

SECOND: Based upon the proposed residential population to be serviced at

this location the physical plant associated with the property at 5 Halsey Place is

inadequate to effectively and safely service the proposed residents. The required

physical alterations to the existing residence and site shall adversely impact the

neighborhood and therefore a more appropriate alternative location should be


WHEREFORE the undersigned respectfully request that this Honorable Board reject

the proposed site as suitable for a group home.
