    Group Homes: Strategies for Effective and Defensible Planning and Regulation

    By Brian J Connolly and Dwight H Merriam

    This book fills a critical gap in the literature by analyzing and applying federal antidiscrimination law to the practical problems of planning for and regulating group homes for people with disabilities.

    "Call this book the GPS for group homes if you wish, because it guides us over an exceptionally broad area—from the practical background of the population of people with disabilities, through the law relating to housing for people with disabilities, and into the planning and regulatory approaches that can and should be applied to group."

    Group Homes provides an overview of the legal obligation to provide fair housing for people with disabilities and the policy rationales standing behind those obligations. It is an invaluable resource for those interested in the history, law, planning policy, and political strategy of developing housing for people with disabilities.

    Resting on two significant assumptions regarding law and history relating to people with disabilities- fair housing is right for all, including those with disabilities, and individuals with disabilities have been subjected to serious discrimination in many realms, particularly housing - it is the intention of this book to ensure that local governments make the appropriate regulations and accommodations to provide equal and fair housing for people with disabilities, while also respecting the rights and legitimate desires of other residents whose properties or lives may be impacted in some meaningful way by a new housing development in the community.

    This book guides you over a wide range of credible information - from the practical background of the population of people with disabilities, through the law relating to housing for people with disabilities, and into the planning and regulatory approaches that can and should be applied to group homes.

    Testimonials

    “This book fills a void in the literature. Here we have in one highly readable volume all of the issues of planning for and regulating group homes, with a comprehensive treatment of the law, of course, but also good, practical advice and even draft regulations.”
    —Patricia E. Salkin, Dean and Professor of Law, Touro College, Jacob D. Fuchsberg Law Center
