WATERBURY-LASALLE - Residents in Waterbury-LaSalle are relieved after a plan to open a group home in their area was rejected.

Residents say they opposed the opening of the home because it was projected to cost about $800,000 and would have placed developmentally disabled adults on Bruckner Boulevard, which is a busy road and close to I-95.

Members of the community board and Pelham Bay Taxpayers Association fought the plan for a year and a half. According to state Sen. Jeffrey Klein, the plan also included bringing clients from other Bronx communities into the area when there are already several group homes and treatment centers.
