    SOUTH BURLINGTON — The South Burlington School Board is appealing a zoning permit for a methadone clinic near the city’s schools.

    The board will hold a meeting on Wednesday to discuss the topic and consider a resolution opposing the location of the clinic on Dorset Street.

    The board says in its appeal that the city did not adequately assess the impact of traffic on the neighborhood or possible security problems that could affect students.

    The Burlington Free Press reported that the clinic would treat an estimated 600 people a day who have addictions to heroin and prescription drug opiods. There’s a waiting list for several hundred more.

    The South Burlington Development Review Board will hold a hearing on the appeal on Oct. 16 at 7 p.m.
