WILMINGTON, MA — The Public Hearing for the Detox Facility Proposal scheduled for the Wilmington Board of Appeals Meeting tonight (Wednesday, May 9) at 7pm at Town Hall has been POSTPONED to Wednesday, June 13 at 7pm at Town Hall.
The applicant (Bettering LLC) requested a continuance. Their representatives will NOT be at the meeting and there is expected to be no discussion on the matter.
The public hearing began back on February 14 when approximately 200 residents packed the Town Hall Auditorium. Attorney Mark Bobrowski and project engineer Ben Osgood received heavy criticism from three Board of Appeals members and more than 20 speakers from the audience, most of whom expressed a concern over a lack of answers and information, particularly surrounding the facility’s security procedures.
After 3.5 hours of discussion, the board unanimously voted to continue the public hearing to its Wednesday, April 25 meeting. The hearing was subsequently rescheduled to its Wednesday, May 8 meeting. It is now scheduled to be taken up at the board’s Wednesday, June 13 meeting.
