Bloomfield will be holding a special meeting to discuss and potentially adopt an ordinance on allowing recreational marijuana businesses.
During their most recent meeting, the council decided to make several changes to the ordinance that was introduced at the end of June.
The original ordinance was referred to the planning board who returned a handful of suggestions.
Michael Parlavecchio, the township attorney, said the planning board recommended a 200-foot buffer to schools and houses of worship from where cannabis would be sold.
"They reasoned that state law imposes this for retail sale of alcohol so retail cannabis should be the same way," Parlavecchio said. "Which I think makes a lot of sense."
Because the proposed changes could affect residents, Parlavecchio suggested a special meeting. The date has not been scheduled yet.
