The city planning commission will decide where it will go at a meeting Tuesday night, but the plan is already getting some pushback, especially on its location.

According to My Everett News, the first facility, run by Therapeutic Health Services, is at capacity and needs more room. 

There was a plan to put the second clinic in the downtown area, but that fell through.

The planning commission is looking at a number of options, including putting another clinic in South Everett, or going north of the city or inside a hospital.

Members of the public will have an opportunity to voice their opinions at the City Council chambers on Wetmore Avenue starting at 6:30 p.m.
