Transcript - Hello . I’m David Chait , a Hopewell Township Committee member , wishing you a Happy Spring and bringing you this month’s community update .
May is a very special month and I would like to wish a Happy Mother’s Day to our residents as well as acknowledge that May is Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month . AAPI Heritage month recognizes the historical and cultural contributions of individuals and groups of Asian and Pacific Islander descent to our community as well as the broader United States .
Following up on last month’s update , at our April 18th Township Committee meeting our 2022 Township Budget was formally introduced . At that meeting , we also adopted an ordinance that allows up to two licenses for adult - use cannabis retail in the Township . As a part of this ordinance , no retail establishment can be within 1000 feet of a school or school facilities and must go through Planning Board review . This is following your feedback from several community forums over the past two years including the most recent one on January 25th .
The Hopewell Township Committee will meet on Monday , May 2nd , and Monday , May 16th . Following the adoption of new rules that support hybrid meetings , these meetings will be held both in person at the Municipal Building and via Zoom at 6:30pm . On the 16th there will also be a Board of Health meeting at 5:30pm .
At our May 2nd meeting , we are planning a second reading and public hearing on a financial agreement with BeiGene - a leading global pharmaceutical company - for the redevelopment of 42 acres on the former BMS Campus . They will be investing over $500 Million dollars in a new state - of - the - art Clinical R&D Center and highly automated manufacturing facility in Hopewell Township after a worldwide search . The Township Committee has been working hard to redevelop this site since BMS moved , and BeiGene is a big step forward towards this goal .
At our May 16th meeting we are planning to hold a public hearing on the budget , pending state review . Additionally many of our citizen volunteer committees will meet throughout this month . For more details on this month’s updates and other meeting dates , please visit the Township website .
Thanks so much for your time and have a wonderful May and Spring!
