I live near this neighborhood. The article states that these are people with intellectual disabilities. It does not state that they are dangerous criminals. We see people with intellectual disabilities working at Stop and Shop and other local stores. They are just trying to support themselves and live independently. There are only three people moving into the home, and although the article doesn't say it, I would imagine some type of resident assistant will move in also. Give these people a chance and let them live their lives. They will probably be the best neighbors you will ever have.

I live in this neighborhood too. I would have liked to heard it from the Town before I read it in The Courant, but I'm just a DOG to milk for taxes to the Town, I have no rights, I guess I'm lucky they let me live here. Whatever, we're moving as soon as my husband gets closer to retirement, then it's so long Wethersfield and probably good by to Connecticut in general. We can't wait.

Hey Morgan, We know who you are. Let us know if you need any help moving. We'd be glad to help. Such negativity is a downer. I have to go now, I need to let my cat out.

Come on kids. I live in Town too! Stop the bickering. We are a community and as such, should stick together in bad and good. We have better things to be concerned with in this life.

You get what you ask for.

It's not the residents that are a problem. Have you considered the employees? LOL.....can't wait.
