Hearing about methadone clinic is Jan. 15

The Holmes­burg Civic As­so­ci­ation is in­vit­ing the com­munity to at­tend an up­com­ing court hear­ing re­lated to a pro­posed meth­adone clin­ic at 7520 State Road.

At­tor­ney Frank Ben­nett, rep­res­ent­ing neigh­bors op­posed to the clin­ic, will make an or­al ar­gu­ment in Com­mon Pleas Court on Wed­nes­day, Jan. 15, at 10 a.m. in room 426 of City Hall.

Ben­nett, who is work­ing pro bono, filed a leg­al brief on Dec. 6.

In April, the Zon­ing Board of Ad­just­ment ap­proved a bid by North­East Treat­ment Cen­ters to open a clin­ic on State Road. The Holmes­burg and May­fair civic as­so­ci­ations, along with some State Road busi­nesses, op­pose the fa­cil­ity and are ap­peal­ing.

The is­sue will be dis­cussed at the next meet­ing of the Holmes­burg Civic As­so­ci­ation, sched­uled for Tues­day, Jan. 14, at 7:15 p.m. at Holmes­burg Re­cre­ation Cen­ter, at Rhawn and Dit­man streets. ••
