Daphne to hold public hearing on psychiatric facility

Saying they wanted to first inform Roper Lane residents about a planned inpatient psychiatric facility in their neighborhood, City Council members this week delayed approval of a local medical group’s effort to renovate the former Albert P. Brewer Developmental Center.

The council agreed to hold a public hearing, but no date was set during the meeting Monday.

Since 2005, the state-owned Brewer Center facility has been home to The Shoul der — Baldwin County’s sole drug and alcohol rehabilitation center — after Hurricane Katrina devastated its Causeway facility.
