US (NJ): Hopewell Township permits cannabis cultivation, manufacturing

Hopewell Township Committee members are allowing the business operations of cannabis cultivators and manufacturers within the township’s Valley Resource Conservation (VRC) district.

The decision came after months of discussions and a public hearing on Sept. 13, which had more than 100 attendees at the virtual Township Committee meeting. Members of the Township Committee adopted an ordinance permitting the operation of Class 1 Cultivation and Class 2 Manufacturing businesses in the VRC zone on Sept. 13.

Mayor Julie Blake, Deputy Mayor Courtney Peters-Manning, Committeewoman Kristin McLaughlin, Committeeman Kevin Kuchinski, and Committeeman Michael Ruger voted “yes” on adopting the ordinance.

Blake, at the meeting, said the Township Committee at a later date would address microbusiness licenses because there is no time limit for those particular licenses.
