Allow mental facility

As a concerned resident of Atascadero since 1981, I have seen and heard of many situations where mental diagnosis and treatment have been needed.

As I have heard and been reading about this proposed behavioral health hospital in Templeton, it seems to me to be a perfect fit for this area. The property is in a medical setting. The plans for the care of patients is well-thought-out.

There should be no need to fear the people who would benefit from this facility. They will be our neighbors of all ages. We especially need to think of the children who will be helped.

Please, give your consent and blessing for this project.
