BRIDGEPORT - Residents say they are upset over a plan to build a halfway house for ex-convicts in a residential section of Bridgeport.
Officials say the home has room for up to 120 inmates, however they say there will only be 26 living there at any given time.
Residents living on Norman Avenue, where the halfway house would be located, say it is still cause for concern, citing a local elementary school down the block.
The halfway house is the brain child of Community Solutions. CEO Bob Pidgeon says the house will not pose any danger to residents, adding that the majority of inmates there will be white-collar criminals with non-violent backgrounds.
