BREAKING: Zoning Board overturns application for Holmesburg methadone clinic

The Zoning Board of Adjustment  has overturned a proposal by Healing Way Inc., the applicant for a methadone facility on Frankford Avenue in Holmesburg. The ruling comes several months after the ZBA first convened following protests from legislators and residents over the summer.

“This extremely important ruling is the culmination of months of work, which has brought local residents together and strengthened our community,” Pa. Rep. Kevin Boyle, D-172nd, said.  “I have been honored to be a part of that fight and am thrilled about this victory.”
