Philhaven fall short of meeting needs

Success - Article sent! close

I am writing to explain why I, and so many people who live in the neighborhood of the proposed Wheeling Daveri/PhilHaven project, are opposed to it.

The for-profit Daveri Company proposes to build tiny 1-3 bedroom apartments for a planned 150-person residence on this three-acre site. The plans do not include a gym, park area, or even an adequate lounge area inside for the residents.  These residents suffer from various mental illnesses and many are also trying to recover from alcohol or drug addiction.

Other than the daytime visiting nurses, only one person (18 years or older) will be hired to oversee any problems arising in this crowded building. These people deserve a better chance to re-enter society than they would find at this profit-minded Daveri project. I believe it is not a good idea for the people, and it is not the best use of the property.
