The Development Review Board on Thursday heard plans for a children’s outpatient clinic
LYNDON — The Development Review Board on Thursday heard plans for a children’s outpatient clinic. Northeast Kingdom Human Services wants to relocate its the Division of Children, Youth and Family Services (CYFS) to 949 McGoff Hill Road. The facility would house 14 staff and offer counseling, social-emotional learning, and job placement services for more than 200 clients ages 3 to 22. Officials said that the McGoff Hill site would average up to 15 visits per day, and most clients lack private transportation and would arrive by NKHS and RCT bus services. Staff would also use the facility as a home base, from which to conduct home visits and offer remote care services. No medications will be stored or distributed on-site, and no prescription pads will be on hand. NKHS seeks permit approval to open the facility as a “medical clinic,” an allowed conditional use in a rural residential zone.
