The Fayetteville City Council Will Hold a Public Hearing for Potential New Restrictions on Halfway Houses

Carolina Public Press is reporting that the Fayetteville City Council will hold a public hearing at its regular meeting Thursday to amend an ordinance to include new restrictions on halfway houses, places where those incarcerated nearing release live before reentering society. The new restrictions, if passed by the council, would limit the number of people allowed to live in a halfway house. The specific restrictions would depend on its proximity to single-family and multifamily housing.
