Fairfield's Fight for Residential Living

We are a grass roots organization that opposes commercial enterprises violating zoning laws by establishing and operating businesses that are prohibited in residential neighborhoods.  

This campaign is to help raise money in our town to compensate attorney fees, local advertising, lawn signs, mailers and possibly commercials.

Corporate-owned, for-profit treatment facilities specifically Newport Academy/ Monroe Operations LLC are moving into residential zones across the country under the guise of by-right “group homes.” Insurance companies, Federal & State Representatives, local municipalities, and local and national press are all beginning to identify the problems caused by “addict entrepreneurs” profiting off of a national crisis without oversight.

We also understand the importance of providing mental health treatment and substance abuse treatment to those who need it, but Newport Academy’s proposed  facilities  would actually provide better care if they were located in commercial zones and not residential neighborhoods unsuited for this type of commercial activity.

If they are allowed to operate the first two facilities on Congress Street and Redding Road, they will have a pathway to bolster the town with facilities in residential neighborhoods. 

Our organization opposes Newport Academy’s unannounced, unwanted and improper entrance into residentially zoned neighborhoods.  We also want to discourage others from following suit.  We are asking YOU to help us so we can pay for legal representation and take other steps to have our voices heard in local zoning proceedings and the state regulatory process necessary for the proposed facilities in Fairfield to become licensed.  Our fight begins here -- yet, any home, anywhere in the State, is vulnerable.
