More than a year after the New Jersey Department of Health granted initial approval to a Chicago-based company’s proposal to open a medical marijuana facility in Mercer County, the firm is expected to seek approvals at the municipal level.
JG New Jersey, LLC, which is doing business as Justice Grown, is scheduled to go before the Ewing Township Planning Board this week in an attempt to move forward with plans to develop a cannabis “manufacturing facility and cultivation center” at 1474 Prospect Street near Olden Avenue, according to a legal notice. The facility would be created in two phases, the first of which would consist of a temporary cultivation and manufacturing area in a portion of the lot that is typically used for parking. The second phase would include turning the longstanding two-story 39,000-square-foot office building on the premises into the home of a permanent cultivation and manufacturing operation, according to the notice.
The matter is expected to go before the planning board on Thursday, January 9, at 7:00 p.m. at the Ewing Township Municipal Building. JG New Jersey, LLC is seeking Preliminary Site Plan approval for both phases along with Final Site Plan approval for the first phase.
