28 feet from the proposed CASIE Center and Family Justice Center location is East Bank Learning Center, a Licensed and Nationally Accredited Child Care Center. This center provides the highest-quality care for more than 200 working professionals in South Bend and surrounding areas. Besides the danger of these children, parents, and their degreed teachers, Morning View, a nursing and rehabilitation care center, Oaklawn Hospital, the brand new St. Joseph's High School and Grade School, historic restaurants such as Sunny Italy and Roccos, brand new East Bank Townhomes, and the East Race Walkway are surrounding the proposed property. The East Race Walkway and all East Bank Village neighbors will soon be put in direct danger as the Casie Center is welcoming interviews of the accused AND convicted perpetrators onto our currently booming and thriving campus.

      I am the mother of two children and I don't believe that predators should be in any area near schools, daycare centers or playgrounds. We need to protect our children and not provide more temptation for those abusing our innocent children.

      My daughter will attend East Bank Learning Center. I won't put her at risk. We must protect these children and the employees at East Bank.
