The proposal, which was introduced late last month, would prohibit the retail sales of marijuana items and related supplies throughout the borough.
"There were a number of retailers that would like to sell marijuana, but we decided it was best to say no," Mayor John Krenzel said. "There is general agreement on this. If you want to wholesale grow it and sell it that is fine, but as far as retail that's a no."
Under the proposal, the classes of cannabis licenses permitted in the borough would be: Class 1 cannabis cultivator license for facilities involved in growing and cultivating cannabis; Class 2 cannabis manufacture license for facilities involved in the manufacturing, preparation and packaging of cannabis items; Class 3 cannabis wholesaler license for facilities involved in obtaining and selling cannabis items for later resale by other licensees; Class 4 cannabis distributor license for businesses involved in transporting cannabis plants in bulk and Class 6 cannabis delivery license.
The borough would limit the number of licenses to five in each permitted class.
The licensed cannabis facilities would be permitted in non-residential districts of B-1 Neighborhood Business District, B-2 General Business District, LI Light Industrial District and WR Waterfront Revitalization District.
