PUBLIC NOTICE
2017-139

September 6, 2017

Presently pending in the Ordinance Committee of the Quincy City Council to be passed at a later date:

BE IT ORDAINED, the City Council if the City of Quincy that the Quincy Municipal Code is hereby amended as follows;

In Title 17 City of Quincy Zoning Ordinance Chapter 17.16 Use Regulation, Section 17.16.020

In Title 7 Special Residential Regulations add the following new section:

7.2 Sober Homes

1.0 Purpose

The purpose of this ordinance is to address issues relating to sober houses in Quincy. Structured sober houses provide housing for individuals in recovery from addiction to drugs and/or alcohol, including people who may have co- occurring mental health issues, as they transition from the treatment setting to life in the community. This housing assists individuals to return to the community through support in an alcohol-and drug-free, home-like environment.

This ordinance is intended to protect the residents of sober houses from operators who engage in abuse, neglect, mistreatment, fraud, and/or inadequate supervision of this vulnerable population as well as to protect the residents of structured sober living homes and the neighboring community from operators who fail to provide a supportive, residential family-like living environment necessary for the residents to achieve and maintain sobriety, in a manner consistent with the reasonable expectations of residents living where sober houses are located in regard to their quality of life.
