PRINCETON, NJ — The township’s Cannabis Task Force (CTF) is inching closer towards making its final recommendation to Town Council. According to officials, CTF will propose Council allow marijuana establishments to operate in town “in any commercially zoned area.”
“We decided that the recommendation the task force is going to make at this point, pending input from the public, is to allow cannabis dispensaries in any commercially zoned area and to limit the number of dispensaries to three,” Eve Niedergang, chair of CTF, told Patch.
However, this recommendation will be made only after “public input is favorable,” Niedergang said. The CTF will be holding two public meetings to hear input from residents.
Based on the recommendation from the Task Force, an ordinance will be presented to Council “not before the second half of October.”
In August, the Council decided to temporarily opt-out of permitting marijuana businesses to operate in town, to give the CTF time to draft recommendations for an opt-in ordinance after reviewing regulations set by the New Jersey Cannabis Regulatory Commission.
