Borough Council members recently approved an ordinance permitting two wholesale and three retail cannabis businesses to locate in certain sections of the 3-square-mile borough.
All other classes of recreational cannabis businesses are prohibited here.
Under the ordinance, wholesale cannabis businesses will be limited to the northwest light industrial zone in the area of Liberty Street while retail will be permitted in the borough's highway retail zone.
No cannabis retail businesses will be allowed along Main Street, between Middlesex and Amboy avenues, which is the heart of the borough's shopping and restaurant area, as well as along South Main Street.
The ordinance includes a $2,500 application fee and a $15,000 annual license fee. In addition, all cannabis businesses in the borough will be a conditional use which means they will have to go before the borough Planning Board and neighbors will be notified about those public hearings.
