After several heated meetings in Warren, the town planning board decided Thursday to rescind approval of the site plan application for the clinic. The board explained that the applicant had left out the possibility of a methadone clinic being the tenant and had therefore lied by omission.

The decision means the clinic cannot open now, but the applicant, Bob Emery, can reapply with full disclosure. Emery maintains he has no signed tenant for the space, and says a methadone clinic would fall under the town’s definition of office space.

While the planning board made a decision on the space Thursday, the town selectmen also moved forward on the issue, discussing a possible six-month moratorium on methadone clinics in the town. A special town meeting will be held on December 13 to discuss that topic.
