Panel mulls over ways to address loud park noise –

Main Street no place for methadone clinic


When Nashua Mayor Donnalee Lozeau first introduced an ordinance to restrict the location of drug and alcohol treatment centers in Nashua, she was motivated largely by the fact that operators of methadone clinics in New Hampshire were eyeing a vacant storefront on Main Street, across the street from City Hall.

So the mayor went back to the drawing board and revised the ordinance in consultation with representatives from Harbor Homes, Keystone Hall, the local hospitals and others engaged in recovery treatment and services.

The result was a rewording of the ordinance to focus exclusively on “drug replacement therapy.”  That ordinance was approved on a voice vote last Tuesday, and now is incorporated into Nashua’s zoning code.
