The City of Carlsbad wants to hear from residents who have input to share about group homes, also known as residential care facilities. Group homes are designed to provide a supportive environment for people requiring some type of care, such as children, the elderly, and people who have chronic illnesses or mental disabilities, and people who are recovering from or being treated for alcohol or drug addictions.
Group Homes Public Meeting Wednesday, Jan 29 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. City of Carlsbad Faraday Administration Center 1635 Faraday Ave., Room 173A
Neighbors of group homes sometimes have concerns about potential noise, traffic, parking and other issues. The purpose of the public meeting is to share information about the laws that apply to group homes, the city’s role and options for residents who have concerns. The feedback from this meeting will be shared with the City Council ad hoc subcommittee on sober living homes, which will then report back to the City Council along with any recommended follow up actions.
