Three New JMZO Ordinances Up for a Vote by Newtown Supervisors

The following new JMZO Definition Ordinances Definition will voting on by the Newtown Board of Supervisors (BOS Definition) at the November 28, 2018, public meeting:

JMZO Ordinance 2017-02 establishes two new uses: E-29 for Medical Marijuana Dispensary and G-15 for Medical Marijuana Grower/Processor. Dispensaries will only be located in the VC‐1 village commercial district in Upper Makefield, and provides for the medical marijuana grower/processors in the LI district in Newtown Township. Suggested reading: “Is There a Role for Medical Cannabis in Combating the Opioid Epidemic?

JMZO Ordinance 2018-01establishes that consumer fireworks can be sold in PA, with restrictions to aerial displays. Note: Newtown's Park & Recreation Code states: "No person shall fire, discharge or have in his or her possession any rocket, firecracker, or other fireworks and substances of an explosive nature within the park system, without first obtaining a permit from the Board of Supervisors."

JMZO Ordinance 2018-02 establishes a Overlay Zoning Definition district within Wrightstown for properties at least 50 acres and are now or will be subject to a Conservation Easement Definition in favor of conserving the property and limiting the use. Permitted uses include micro-brewery, tasting room, “conservation” special events, art gallery, and community theater.

These ordinances were approved for advertising by the Jointure at the October 10, 2018, BOS meeting (see here).

THIS WILL BE YOUR LAST CHANCE to go on the record with your comments regarding these ordinances. The meeting will begin at 7:00 pm at the Pubic Meeting Room at the Municipal Center, 100 Municipal Drive, Newtown, PA.
