WILMINGTON, MA — Below is a message from the Concerned Citizens of Wilmington:
The residents of North Wilmington have been working tirelessly to make sure a “for profit” detoxification center is not placed in a densely populated residential area. “It’s the right idea, but the WRONG location!”
At a special town meeting held December 15, 2017, residents voted overwhelmingly to designate all medical facilities to industrial like areas. Unfortunately, the proposer of this project filed prior to this vote to be grandfathered under the old bylaw, allowing him to proceed with his plan.
We, as several neighborhoods, strongly feel such a business would bring a myriad of serious issues for residents and small businesses in the area, and put some of our most vulnerable residents at risk and limit their ability to access their community safely.
We have started this GoFundMe account to assist in our fight for our neighborhoods! Monies generated will go towards expenses of signs, flyers, advertisements, consults with professionals, etc. We would be grateful for any donation you might be able to afford. Donate HERE.
The fight is not OVER!
Please attend the Zoning Board of Appeals Meeting currently scheduled for Wednesday, October 17, 2018 at 7pm at Town Hall!
Since this case has been chronically postponed over the past several months, please check out our Facebook page for updates.
