Residents Question NYS Officials About Who Will Be Living in Group Home

NIMBY reaches an extreme in New York State.

FORT EDWARD, N.Y. -- Residents of Bascom Drive and Hillview Avenue have a better idea about the new residents of a 7 Bascom Ave. group home and also have a way to contact state officials with their concerns.But residents, some of whom have lived in the neighborhood for more than five decades, are still uneasy about how a home for people with developmental disabilities was opened up to clients with both developmental issues and criminal backgrounds.One resident asked for the names of those living in the home and was told that information was protected by privacy laws.
