News Staff's picture

The Livingston Planning Board, in discussing a proposed amendment to the Master Plan to include the prohibition of marijuana-based businesses last Thursday evening, November 14, voted to keep such a ban out of the Master Plan. The Board instead made an addendum that instructs the Township Council to be aware of issues associated with the cannabis industry.

The following addendum to the Master Plan was formally adopted:

“The Township Council should be aware of the emerging land use issues involving the cannabis industry, solicit the input of the community, and consider and adopt such prohibitions or regulations of cannabis land uses as the Township Council may determine to be in the best interests of the health, safety and welfare of the community.”
