To all of my neighbors:

The city of Franklin has plans for Matt Talbot Recovery Services Inc. to construct a 5-8 bedroom 3,690 square foot Male Community-based Residential Facility (CBRF) to be put near the intersection of 92nd and Hwy 100. As a mother of small children and a resident of Franklin this is very concerning and I feel the need to make sure all of my neighbors are informed as to what is happening in our area.

A CBRF is a facility that provides services to alcoholics, chemically-dependant and behaviorally challenged persons and their families regardless of their abilities to pay. That information came directly from the website of Matt Talbot. Our city has already voted on 3/3/15 and is already allowing the company to extend the water main across Hwy 100 and turning down 92nd st to go past this property.

Now I was informed of this information by another neighbor about two weeks ago. I put several phone calls in to my alderman Suzanne Mayer with no response back. I ask why none of the residents in the surrounding area were contacted until after the vote was already passed??? Suzanne Mayer then paid someone to disperse papers throughout our neighborhood. In her statement she claimed that the facility is for the disabled, but then went on to state that the group who presented the project did not and could not elaborate on this subject.

As stated per the Matt Talbot Recovery Services website, a person in the recovery program stays on average 90 days in the facility. If this facility houses 8 bedrooms, that means on average 32 different people will be coming in and out of our neighborhood. This is not including any employees, family members or anyone else visiting the facility. Now, I ask you neighbors, is this Facility in the best interest of our neighborhood?

There is a meeting this Thursday, March 19th at 7pm at City Hall. We would like to get as many of our neighbors there as possible. Suzanne Mayer has informed us that this meeting is not a public hearing (her voicemail even states this). It is still good that all of us make an appearance to show that we are concerned about our neighborhood and to find out the facts of what is happening around us.

There is a group of us who are completely opposed to this construction and are willing to do whatever it takes to keep this facility away from our families. If you are willing to help in this matter or know anything that could be of help to us please feel free to email us at
