Methodone clinic challenged again by new neighbors

A children's medical clinic and an apartment complex have joined forces to challenge the city of Medford's approval of a methadone clinic at 777 Murphy Road.

The Land Use Board of Appeals is considering Southern Oregon Pediatrics and Mariposa Townhomes assertion that the city should have conducted a public process in approving the methadone clinic.

The clinic, which serves 500 clients a day, moved into its new location this summer after it was forced to move from its previous location on East Main Street because it was found to be located too close to a day care center.
