Not a good site for this ministry

Not a good site for this ministry

I live on Gladstone Road in North Jackson. I am writing in regards to the Fifth Sparrow Ministry that purchased property in our neighborhood and wants to house up to five women who have been recently released from a correctional facility.

When they purchased the property they did not publicize what their intentions were; we had to find out through other sources. This property borders Mahoning and Trumbull counties, so it will also affect Lordstown residents.

These women could have commited various crimes including theft, drug related offenses, or even possibly be sex offenders. We are a residential neighborhood that consists of elderly and families with children. We do not want this facility in our neighborhood.

My hope is to inform people about this ministry and what their plans are. I would like people who are supporting this to consider how they would feel if this was in their backyard. I am not saying that this is not a good cause; we just believe that it should be in an area where there are not families with children.

Kelly Wells, North Jackson

The people of Gladstone meant with The Fifth Sparrow before starting this. They knew who were moving in, there was no false pretense. The people who are talking should not be casting stones, they have things in their past also.

I live right next door to this place. We were never told what the property was purchased for. I Do Not Want felons living next to me. Who would? I moved out here to get away from stuff like this. By the way, I can throw as many stones as I want. I do not live in a glass house. There are ALOT of people that DO NOT WANT THIS HERE. No protection from the visitors and the felons that they want to house here. There will be no one to watch or screen these people. I strongly feel that our children, us, and our personal property will be in danger if this place goes forward. We will fight till the end!!! We want FAMILIES not FELONS in our neighborhood!!!
