North Hill residents rally against Probation and Parole office moving into neighborhood

Saturday, March 8th, dozens of people roamed the streets of the North Hill Neighborhood, passing out flyers telling residents to attend Pensacola's upcoming council meeting.
    They're trying to rally support and send a message.

They don't want to see thousands of offenders in their neighborhood.

The City of Pensacola gave the Departent of Corrections a permit to move into the old Coca Cola Bottling Plant on Palafox street.
    However, the building on Palafox isn't zoned for a correctional community center.

Melanie Nichols, President of North Hill Association, said "A lot of these people are felony offenders, for murder for rape and offenses against children. That is not compatible with a residential neighborhood."

The Pensacola City Council is expected to discuss the Probation and Parole office moving to the old Coca Cola Bottling Plant this upcoming Thursday night at its council meeting.
