The Covington News - - OPINION -

We can un­der­stand a com­mu­nity’s con­cern on hav­ing group homes and res­i­dences in their neigh­bor­hoods.

Hav­ing that con­cern doesn’t make the people of that com­mu­nity cruel or not car­ing.

Many folks in our area picked their homes be­cause of the quiet na­ture of the neigh­bor­hoods they have cho­sen.

Tak­ing the chance of shat­ter­ing that peace and quiet by al­low­ing group homes or any homes with mul­ti­ple fam­i­lies is not fair.

We agree with the county’s re­cent de­ci­sion to tighten reg­u­la­tions so that group homes can­not spring up every­where.

There is plenty of land in New­ton County if you wish to have and op­er­ate a group home. Find va­cant land and build to your hearts con­tent, then ev­ery­one will be happy.
