    You realize that median and average income are different statistics? Apples and oranges comparison. #keepmakingupnumbers #25001

      Think the population and size might have something to do with that? But ya, $46K ayear should get you a nice new Escalade. Lol.

        Escalades are cheap used. Compared to what they cost new.

New reviews and regulations have been coming in for a number of years now because it is a real concern. When we talk to them and it comes up, it is immensely depressing to hear about some of the places.
            I am all for having regulations or a proven track record etc. If the YMCA or John Howard want to open a group home in a area to me there is zero reason for the city to be involved the regulations should be at the provincial level.

              more money per household is more money per household. What do you think the cost of living comparison is like between the two locations atop of that? There are some fat wages in oil country, down market or not.

                So you feel the province should start a whole new division to govern and monitor it all, and infringe upon municipal districts by rewriting laws and such? This sounds expensive.

                  They are at the civil level due to zoning bylaws. When they wanted to create a group home on my Mom's street it had to be posted due to a group home not being deemed as residential.

                      No argument there. Enjoy Weyburn

                        erm, don't live there, just pointing out that your perception is inaccurate

Its not about hating on people with disabilities, its about expecting to live in a neighborhood of just single family residential dwellings. There is enough infill property, abandoned or soon to be abandoned churches in Weyburn by the downtown or bordering the commercial area that can be repurposed or ripped down to build this home.

                          I think the councilors and neighbors are getting a raw deal here.
                          No one's talking about condos, gas stations, or any other sort of thing. It's a HOME for 4 residents. These people aren't going to party till 2 am, have the whole high school over when mom and dad are away, they won't have smokey fire pits or peel out of the neighbourhood with their modified muffler truck. It's a frickin group home for 4 disabled people. A private daycare with up to 8 kids would be far more intrusive than this.

                            What’s the difference between a house with four disabled people and two caregivers vs a home with a mom, dad, and four teenagers? I’m inclined to think the group home would make for a more peaceful neighbourhood. You want people to live in repurposed buildings instead of nice family-style homes just because they’re disabled? Yeesh.

                              Nah. Good community planning should occur to mix all different types of housing and amenities. I spent in your price range on my place, there’s an empty lot down the street waiting for a care home to be built, a block from that is an apartment style condo, between are town houses. In between all of that is a small park. Just past all of those is a commercial area with multiple amenities that includes grocery, banking, food, pharmacy and more space to build as the neighborhood fills in.

                              The world would be a helluva lot better if people came together rather than trying to keep people apart.

                                What perception is that?
