We saw the artist rendering of this facility at a commission meeting the other night and it was very nice. This is something we need more of and that seems like a good location.

While this is awesome, and definately needed, how about some facilities for severe special needs adults? 20-something adults, who need full-time care and monitoring don't belong in the nursing homes and alzheimer care facilities as they are designed especially to care for those needs. There's really nothing out here in the Tri-Valley for those of us with adult children with severe special needs. Adults with developmental disabilities deserve the same care as those with Alzheimers.
