Behavioral Health Crisis Center

More than 100 people, many of them sporting stickers touting Lake County United's support for a proposed behavior health center, packed a May Vernon Hills Planning and Zoning Board hearing, spilling out into an adjacent conference room and overflow area, where they watched the proceedings on a closed-circuit television.

The Planning and Zoning Board, which initially seemed to reject the request for a special use permit for the hospital, changed its mind and its vote after more 30 residents, related their difficulties finding help for family members, themselves, or clients during mental health crises.

POSTPONED: NEXT STEP: Village of Vernon Hills Committee of the Whole will meet on July 18th at 7:00 PM to discuss the proposed hospital. POSTPONED

STAY TUNED - WE WILL SEND THE THE NEW DATE OF THE VILLAGE COMMITTEE OF THE WHOLE ASAP.
