Cannabis Survey
A City Council moratorium restricting approvals by the Jersey City Cannabis Control Board will go into effect May 15, 2023.  This moratorium allows the City Council to review, amend, and streamline the current Cannabis rules.  The Hamilton Park Neighborhood Association is collecting data to help inform our Council people on how to modify the municipal code to respond to concerns from residents.  Your email will not be shared.  Some of the questions are required, some are not.  Results from this survey will be summarized and shared on as well as with our Council people.  No raw data will be shared.  There is a question at the end of the survey to express your opinions in paragraph form.

The current process for obtaining a license is confusing.  This is one reason the City Council took the step to pass a moratorium.  Should the residents living within a certain distance of the proposed location be informed and public opinion be heard at every approval point:  1) Cannabis Control Board, 2) Planning Board, and 3) City Council?  Please check at which points should Public opinion be heard? *
Per the Planning Board application, residents must be informed in writing of a dispensary proposed within 200 feet of a retail location.  This notification allows residents to attend the planning board meeting and voice their support or their concerns.  It has been brought to the attention of the HPNA that people have not been notified.  Please select one of the options below. *
If residents claim they were not informed at the planning board meeting and the Applicant cannot prove that they were, should the application be automatically postponed until the following planning board meeting? *
