Methadone clinic to continue planning for new building, despite complaint

An attorney representing a methadone clinic in Lowell said his client will continue to plan for a move into a new building, despite a complaint filed with the city Zoning Board of Appeals over its new location on the Lowell-Chelmsford line. David Daly, president and chief executive of Daly General Contracting and PrideStar EMS, has cited concerns about the new clinic, ranging from pedestrian safety to traffic flow and negative effects for the neighborhood as a whole. He has filed an appeal through his attorney representing his businesses, which are located on property abutting the proposed clinic site. Habit OpCo, the clinic, is leaving its current Hall Street location because of an expired lease with the Wannalancit Mills complex.
