Sober homes face restrictions in San Bernardino

SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. (AP) -- Large sober-living homes and residential treatment facilities would require permits and be restricted in certain neighborhoods, under new rules approved in San Bernardino County.

The Sun newspaper reports (http://bit.ly/1hfU1A8) the proposed changes were approved unanimously Tuesday by county supervisors.

Under the new regulations, residential neighborhoods would be limited to two sober living homes housing six or fewer people per block.

Large residential care facilities housing seven or more people will typically not be allowed to operate in certain neighborhoods and require a conditional use permit.

Neighbors complained after a number of alcohol- and drug-recovery facilities began popping up in the Lake Arrowhead area.

A temporary ban on new facilities was put in place while county officials studied the issue. That moratorium will be lifted 30 days after supervisors adopt the ordinance at their next meeting.
