School board to hold meeting on methadone clinic

SOUTH BURLINGTON — The South Burlington School Board will consider a resolution opposing the location of a methadone clinic near the city’s schools.
The board has appealed a zoning permit for the clinic, saying the city did not adequately assess the impact of traffic on the neighborhood or possible security problems that could affect students.
The Burlington Free Press reports that the clinic would treat an estimated 600 people a day who have addictions to heroin and prescription drug opiods. There’s a waiting list for several hundred more.
The school board will meet to discuss the topic on Wednesday.
The South Burlington Development Review Board will hold a hearing on the appeal on Oct. 16 at 7 p.m.
