FLEMINGTON – Lots of cannabis enterprises are seeking to relocate to Flemington, but the areas they can set up shop can be restricted.

On Monday, the City Council introduced an ordinance limiting exactly where cannabis enterprises can open in the county seat.

If it passes soon after a public hearing on March 27, shops will not be permitted to open in the city center or in the Stangl Road region.

Shops will only be permitted on state or county roads, according to the ordinance.

Nevertheless, Borough Administrator Michael Humphrey told the Council he has been finding telephone calls from cannabis firms that have currently received state approval that want to find in Flemington and are in the “pre-leasing” stage.

He mentioned they are seeking at spaces which includes the vacant Rite Help at Route 31 and Church Street, the former Red Crab Juici Seafood on Flemington Circle and the former 30 Burgers subsequent to the Burger King on Route 202.

Flemington has only 4 cannabis licenses, two for health-related sales and two for recreational sales. 1 place can have each health-related and recreational sales.

In November, the council supported McGraw Holdings’ proposal to open a dispensary on Stangle Road, but McGraw has not received approval from the state, Humphrey mentioned.

Councilwoman Susan Engelhardt mentioned the Organizing Board overwhelmingly discovered the proposed ordinance “not in the spirit” of Flemington’s master program and “fundamentally inconsistent” with the master plan’s contact to encourage a lot more organization downtown.

Engelhardt, who also sits on the Organizing Board with Mayor Marsha Carrow, mentioned she supports the ordinance, which could alter at any time.

Since cannabis is a new organization, she mentioned it could be “scary” for some people today and she wanted to wait a couple of years to see the influence of cannabis organization in the state.

Carrow mentioned the “significant concern” driving the proposed ordinance limiting enterprises to highways was parking and visitors.

Downtown and Stangle Road may well not have sufficient parking for the visitors that the cannabis organization generates, she mentioned, in contrast to Aunt Mary’s, which is positioned in a purchasing center with sufficient parking and excellent visitors circulation.

Carrow also mentioned the ordinance can be changed “anytime we want.”
