Hopewell Township will halt future local support for cannabis retail establishments.
The township has already issued resolutions supporting four applicants.
Township Committee members voted unanimously to approve a resolution at the governing body’s Sept. 19 meeting.
“I think it is prudent to put a pause on things. We have vetted a couple opportunities and we have had a robust discussion over which applications might be stronger than others,” Committeeman Kevin Kuchinski said. “But that is ultimately a Planning Board and state decision.”
Mayor Courtney Peters-Manning, Deputy Mayor Michael Ruger, Committeeman David Chait, Committeewoman Uma Purandare, and Kuchinski voted “yes” on the resolution.
