N.J. Senator Focuses on Relocating Residents

More than 500 disabled individuals will need new homes as the state closes its Totowa and Woodbridge developmental centers over the next five years.

Sen. Loretta Weinberg wants to make sure that in planning for those relocations, the state Division of Developmental Disabilities takes into account lessons learned from earlier developmental center closures.

Toward that end, Weinberg has introduced legislation to require a study of how several hundred former residents of the North Princeton Developmental Center fared after it was closed in 1998.
