PLYMOUTH –Plymouth Mayor David Merchant stated that the town is moving forward on economic development, and tackling marijuana issues.

Merchant has requested the local Planning and Zoning Commission to put a moratorium on marijuana dispensaries opening in town at their next meeting.

“At this point, we’re just going to put a hold on any permits that we would give out until we can get ordinances in place to reflect that the town wants to do,” he said. “It will probably be a few months down the road before the council comes up with those ordinances.”

Mechant also said that anywhere from two to four new buildings will likely be going up in town this summer. He said that he has businesses interested in moving into lots on Lassy Court, Swicklas Court and Container Drive.

“There’s quite a bit of activity in the business park,” said Merchant. “We haven’t closed yet, but site work is being done on those locations. There are only a limited amount of lots left at this point. I’m very happy to see new businesses moving into town.”
