Some Brick residents contacted Shorebeat on Monday, confused as to whether the planned hearing on a proposed medical marijuana dispensary and grow house was still on schedule to be taken up by the township’s Board of Adjustment on Wednesday.
The short answer: yes, the hearing will be held as planned at 7 p.m. Wednesday at Civic Plaza, 270 Chambers Bridge Road.
As for the long answer, the confusion began when a legal notice was published in the newspaper and taped to the front door of town hall on Monday. The notice said the Board of Adjustment’s Jan. 9 meeting had been postponed. Technically that’s true, but the postponed meeting was the board’s reorganizational meeting that it must hold once a year (the reorganization meeting is considered separate from the special hearing). That meeting is now set to be held at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, according to a new round of public notices issued Monday.
