The body previously endorsed a site on 6th Avenue for Green Recreational Holdings, LLC to operate a Class 2 Cannabis Manufacturing facility. This facility is responsible for transforming raw cannabis materials into various forms such as edibles, oils, extracts, topicals, and other cannabis-infused products. The manufacturing process typically involves extraction, purification, formulation, and packaging of cannabis products. However, at that time, the city didn't have enough licenses for another Class 1 Cultivator (grower).
To align with state regulations, the Paterson Code was amended at a previous meeting to increase the number of licensees for Class 1 Cultivators from three to six, where more than three licensees have already been given conditional approval by the State of New Jersey, subject to local municipal approval. This amendment now enables the granting of a Class 1 Cultivator license at the same site. Green Recreational Holdings, LLC had expressed interest in operating a site that combines Cultivation and Manufacturing activities.
