Ossining residents' concerns have grown about a home for ex-convicts now that it is known that those living there will not be under 24-hour supervision.
The Village of Ossining Corporation Counsel revealed at a meeting Wednesday that former inmates living at a home on Washington Avenue will not be supervised. Instead, a state parole officer will visit those who live there.
Residents say they are troubled by the potential lack of supervision, given the home's close proximity to a park and Park Early Childhood Center.
Nonprofit group Hudson Link oversees the program, which helps transition former prisoners back into regular life. Hudson Link Executive Director Sean Pica was unable to respond to News 12's request for comment.
Village trustee Omar Herrera says a meeting is in the works to open up the lines of communication between village leaders, Hudson Link and the community.
"Despite all that's going on, all the noise, all the concerns, we've never had a joint meeting to actually learn about the pilot program, addressing the concerns," says Herrera. "So I'm happy to hear Hudson Link is open and I'm not surprised they're our new Ossining neighbor."
Ossining Superintendent Dr. Ray Sanchez says he does not plan on sending out a letter to parents about the home at this time.
The home, which has room to house five people, is scheduled to open sometime this spring. It is unclear who is moving in, and what their criminal history is.
