The Board of Selectmen won’t help Northeast Kingdom Human Services fight Act 250 review for a proposed 8-bed facility on Cornerstone Lane

LYNDON — The Board of Selectmen won’t help Northeast Kingdom Human Services fight Act 250 review for a proposed 8-bed facility on Cornerstone Lane. The non-profit had asked Town Administrator Justin Smith to support a draft stipulation between NKHS and the Vermont Natural Resources Board, which would waive the Act 250 Smith brought the matter to the Select Board on Monday, and a motion to support the draft stipulation failed for lack of a second. Earlier this year the District 7 Environmental Commission determined that Cornerstone Lane requires an Act 250 permit due to community impacts, specifically on local law enforcement.
