Residents Meet To Discuss Group Home Regulations

Around 25 people came out to voice their concerns about group home regulations Thursday night and what can be done to make them safer. Recent concerns over group homes began in April when police say a little boy was abducted and stabbed by Roger Einspahr, a resident of a North Lincoln group home. Following the incident, Mayor Coleen Seng organized a task force to study group home regulations

The task force began meeting two weeks ago to answer tough questions surrounding group homes. They say whatever changes they suggest, their goal is the safety of group home clientele, and neighborhoods. The task force will continue their weekly meetings for the next four months. Then they'll turn in recommendations for any policy changes to the Mayor.
