TABLED - Cannabis Businesses Ordinance Amendment
The council tabled the cannabis amendments which adjusted the locations where retail establishments could operate.
Council Ed Zipperich called for the tabling saying they did not receive notification from the Planning Board’s April 17 meeting which rejected the amendment.
The rejection was based on the opinion of Planning Board attorney Michael Leckstein who said, “That the present borough ordinance is contrary to the Master Plan…, because it is inconsistent and is detrimental to economic development,”
The Red Bank council will hold a hybrid (online and in-person), regular meeting this Wednesday, April 26, 6:30pm, at Borough Hall, 90 Monmouth Street.
