Mental crisis facility update:

 Turning Point Community Programs has announced it WILL NOT seek to open a 15-bed mental crisis facility on Elm Avenue in Orangevale. In a message to our group, Turning Point CEO Al Rowlett confirmed that the organization will not pursue a special use permit and has no intent to “repurpose the property.” County officials, including the office of Supervisor Sue Frost, have also said the Turning Point project will not go in on Elm Avenue. We are gratified that Turning Point has responded to community concerns about establishing the facility so close to schools and in an area not zoned for such a use.
