The city has turned away a proposal for manufacturing marijuana cigarettes at a property on North Delsea Drive.
The proposal rested on getting a use variance from the local cannabis zoning ordinance, since the site has a house on it and regulations prohibit a house sharing a lot with any cannabis operation.
Zoning Board members unanimously rejected the idea at a hearing Wednesday night.
“I don’t believe that a residential use on this type of property based on the city’s creation of regulations is appropriate,” Chairman George LoBiondo said. “I don’t think the application would have been approved without a site plan, even if there wasn’t a residential use.”
