Thread 2: Care Where Needed

Consider this scenario:

The city plans to build a new drug rehabilitation clinic, which will include a job-training center on the edge of the city. The location is across the street from a high-income suburb and next to another middle-income city neighborhood. Officials cite the increase in drug-related crime in outer areas as one reason for the location but also cite the fact that more jobs are available in inner ring suburbs. The city is promoting the partnerships created with companies willing to assist in job placement with the new clinic but nearby residents are not happy.
