CRDA To Hear Planning Applications For AC Marijuana Growing Facility And Three Dispensaries – Route 40

Three new retail cannabis dispensaries and one 125,000-foot cannabis growing facility are seeking permission to open in Atlantic City. The dispensaries are looking to occupy existing buildings that were previously a soup kitchen, a check-cashing location and a video rental store, while the growing facility would be a newly-constructed building covering most of a city block. The Casino Reinvestment Development Authority, the state body that oversees planning in Atlantic City’s tourism and business districts, is holding a public hearing at 10:00am today to discuss the plans.

A company called Starboard Enterprises is seeking to build a cannabis growing facility just two blocks from the retail outlets known as The Walk. The company is proposing building a class 1 and class 2 facility on the 1700 block of Atlantic Ave, between Indiana and Martin Luther King Avenues, with parking for 75 vehicles. The project’s investors include Jon Cohn and Craig McHugh who run a growing facility in Exton, PA called Agri-Kind. Part of the site is city-owned property that would be conveyed to the owners of the project under a city ordinance. The owners could not immediately be reached for comment.
