The Hopewell Township Committee has passed resolutions supporting applications by four retail cannabis stores in the Township, three of them near the traffic circle on Route 31 and another at the vacant Pennytown site.
The Committee approved three of the resolutions at a meeting this week after presentations from the applicants Floro Hopewell and Icon Canna, and an earlier presentation by Jersey Meds Management. The Committee in April approved a resolution supporting an application by Pure Blossom.
The resolutions are the first step in applying to the State for a retail license and indicate that the proposals meet the Township’s general zoning and site requirements.
Hopewell will ultimately allow just two cannabis stores to locate in the Township. The Committee supported all four resolutions and will consider them on a first-come, first-served basis after each is approved by the State. The applications must then be reviewed by the Township Planning Board.
