Some 50 JDC Residents To Be Moved Today, Before Hearing on Closure


A group that opposes the closure of the Jacksonville Developmental Center says as many as 50 residents are being moved out today, one day before a state board holds a hearing on whether that closure should proceed.

 

Most of those residents are being relocated to smaller, community-based homes, which was the goal of Governor Pat Quinn’s decision to close JDC.

 

But the opposition group says more than a dozen residents are being transferred to other large state facilities.

 

State officials say that’s because their families have not consented to moving them to a smaller group home setting.
