"City" piece on the soon-to-be-opened $32 million Long Creek Youth Development C
"City" piece on the soon-to-be-opened $32 million Long Creek Youth Development Center, which is scheduled to replace the nearby Maine Youth Center in South Portland later this winter. But Ann Waldron, a volunteer at the facility and a member of its board of visitors, said girls in the institution are not getting equal facilities. Waldron said girls committed to the new center and those waiting for their first court appearances will live together, putting young female minor-offenders in with females convicted of serious offenses. On the boys' side of the center, those awaiting court appearances and those serving time will be separated. Long Creek can accommodate 148 boys, but just 18 girls. Males will have 139 rooms, most of them private. But the girls have only 10 rooms, all but two of them doubles.
