The Wilmington Insider For November 30, 2017

WILMINGTON, MA — Below is a round-up of what’s going on in Wilmington on Thursday, November 30, 2017:

In The News:

Lowell Sun Editorial: In yesterday’s Lowell Sun, the paper announced its opposition to the proposed zoning changes relative to detox centers in town. “We urge Wilmington voters to reject that industrial-zone-only detox article,” said the editors. “These individuals — perhaps a neighbor or even a family member — need every option available to beat the potentially lethal hold of drug dependency. Don’t pre-emptively slam the door on one of those lifelines.” Read the entire editorial (“Wilmington: Don’t ‘hide’ detox center with site restriction”) HERE.
