DRB hearing held on detention center

NEWBURY—If there is support for the state’s proposed juvenile detention center in Newbury, there was little to be found inside the Newbury Elementary School gymnasium on Saturday.
Nearly 100 people turned out for the Newbury Development Review Board hearing on the Covered Bridge Treatment Center. As many as 56 people were on Zoom.
After more than five hours of presentations, questions, answers, comments, the hearing was continued to Oct. 21 at 6 p.m. The plan, DRB members said, is to hold the meeting at the same location or outside on the village common.
