ounty protests proposed halfwa house

N
p.

By DEBI DAVIS
Community pressure is mounting against a
rosed North Campus area halfway house that
ate officials hope will house 70 inmates
awaiting parole.
There has been virtually no organized support
for the planned facility while various local
governmental bodies have urged the state to
reconsider its plans.
The latest group to voice its opposition was the
Washtenaw County Board of Commissioners,
which voted Wednesday night to formally ask the
state Department of Corrections to reconsider its
lans.
THE RESOLUTION, sponsored by Com-
rpissioner Gerald Faye (D-Ann Arbor), charged
that the halfway house would constitute an "un-
fair burden on the community."

The halfway house plan is being held up by the
Ann Arbor Zoning Board of Appeals, which could
cause the state to abandon its plans if the board
fails to continue the special zoning of the proper-
ty that allows such projects.
Even if the zoning board fails to reapprove the
property for non-residential uses, the state could
still insist on opening the halfway house. But
state officials involved in the controversy say
they would disregard the zoning only if they
could not find another suitable location.
LAST WEEK, the University Board of Regents
passed a similar resolution publicly opposing the
establishment of the halfway house. The site is
close to student cooperative housing and Univer-
sity dormitories on North Campus.
The main point of contention among com-

missioners was the size of the proposed facility.
Commissioner Donald Duquette (D-Ann Arbor),
said that the size of the facility was "just
outrageous."
COMMISSIONER MERI Lou Murray (D-Ann
Arbor), the only member to vote against the
resolution, said that the county should not get in-
volved in the dispute.
"Neither the city nor the University ever
asked t-he county to get involved," she said. If I
were on the Ann Arbor City Council or the Zoning
Board of Appeals my position would have ben
different."
But Faye disagreed and said the county should
get involved because it "has a broader picture of
social institutions in the area than does the city."
He also said that Ann Arbor City Councilman

Earl Greene (D-2nd ward) knew of his resolution
to block the facility beforehand, and did not raise
any objections.
MURRAY, HOWEVER, said there was no
reliable information available at the time of the
commissioners' meeting, citing conflicting
reports on the size of the proposed institution.
Figures on the number of prisoners ranged
from 24 to more than 100, she said.,
"All I knew was what I had read in the
newspapers, and I wanted to be able to make a
rational decision," Murray said. "But the voting
was emotional."
In a separate resolution, Commissioner
Margaret O'Connor (r-Ann Arbor) proposed that
the board seek help from the Michigan state
legislature to prevent the state from overturning
the decision.

she said. "The people in the neighborhood are
scared-they'd have to lock their doors.
"Instead of locking up the people who should
be locked up, we are locking ourselves up.
O'Connor said, referring to the neighbors who
"would have to lock their doors and keep their
children indoors."
The public hearing before the Zoning Board of
Appeals scheduled for last Wednesday has been
postponed for a month, at the requestof Dr. Ar-
nold Kambly, who owns the Broadway property.
and his attorney.
This is the second time the hearing, originally

E VICTIM WAS taken to Univer-
Hospital Wednesday night where
was treated for eight head,

ations on her right hand and wrist.
nsey said the victim was practicing

the piano in one of the Union's soun-
dproof rooms when she heard a knock
on the door. When she opened the door,
two men allegedly entered the room,
police said.
The suspects then told her to continue
playing, Tinsey said. When she said she
wanted to leave, the suspects said they
had a gun and told her to remove her
clothes, according to police.
WHEN THE VICTIM refused, the
assailants allegedly knocked her down.
She was able to free herself after being
hit several time's in the head, and
escaped into the hall, police said. Wit-

"We have nothing firm on the suspec-
ts as of yet," said Walter Stevens,
Cirector of University Security.
