EXPLANATORY STATEMENT

Upon adoption, this Ordinance would amend and supplement Chapter §128 of the Borough Code of the Borough of Riverton to determine that, due to present uncertainties regarding the potential future impacts that allowing one or more classes of cannabis business might have on New Jersey municipalities in general, and on the Borough in particular, it is at this time necessary and appropriate to amend and update existing code provisions to designate the cultivation, manufacture, selling and reselling of cannabis and cannabis items as prohibited uses in all zoning districts of the Borough.
