Plans for a cannabis retail store on Route 22 West were presented at a December meeting of the township’s Board of Adjustment.
The Bud Shop, LLC, to be located at 1565 Rt. 22 West, will move into the retail space vacated by Just Cribs in a strip mall that also houses LL Flooring and a steakhouse restaurant. The applicants were seeking approval to renovate the existing retail space to open a Class 5 cannabis dispensary.
Attorney for the applicant, Daniel Lagana of Cleary, Giacobbe, Alfieri, Jacobs, LLC, said other than an updated sign, which may require a height variance, there would be no change to the exterior of the building. He said a parking variance is not necessary, as there is adequate parking spots for the site. “This is a retail establishment replacing a retail establishment.”
