The owner of an irregular-shaped lot could face an uphill challenge if she proceeds with a plan to build a cannabis cultivation and distribution facility on Industrial Way West in the borough's business park zone.
The main obstacles are threefold: the lot might be too small to build on, an adjacent property owner plans to object and the licenses are becoming competitive in the borough as the state nears the launch of the adult-use recreational cannabis industry.
A grandfather provision, however, may solve the lot size problem.
Rita Ruggieri of Holmdel brought her concept for a three-story facility to the Planning Board for an informal review on Monday. In an informal review, the board takes no action, but can give nonbinding feedback on a concept.
