Some Temple parents are on edge, and it's all about a new drug and alcohol halfway house.
Due to the I-35 expansion, the Cen-Tex Alcoholic Rehabilitation Center is rebuilding in East Temple, near Adams and 50th street.
"Nobody knew, nobody was informed by anyone what was going on," said Wayne Vaughan, who lives across the street from the building site.
In a heated meeting in downtown Temple, Vaughan and many of his neighbors let it be known, they're not happy.
"All I'm saying is it should not be there. It is in a residential area with babies, little babies living right next to it," said Vaughan.
And it's not only their families and personal belongings they're worried about.
Construction has already begun for the new halfway house, but the problem is it's only about 1,500 feet away from Hector Garcia Elementary School.
"We have a six-year-old that just started kindergarten,and we live less than a mile from Hector Garcia School," said worried mom Jodi Guthrie.
Erroll Wendland sits on the rehab center's board.
He said he's been around the facility for more than 30 years and never had a major problem.
"They are people trying to get straight and get alcohol out of their system," said Wendland.
The location will house about 80 court-ordered felons who will be treated for drug and alcohol abuse.
"Just the fact that they're currently not being approved because of their actions doesn't make them all murders or rapist," said Wendland.
But for people like Wayne, nothings going to make him feel better about having the halfway house right across the street.
"It's a good program, but there is a better place for it," said Vaughan.
Members of the Cen-Tex rehab board said they bought that specific piece of land because they could afford it and in order to move, someone would have to buy them out.
Several Temple residents are writing letters to the state to try and get the rehab center moved to a new location.
