Many in the village and throughout Montgomery County are hoping the proposed E29 Labs cannabis cultivation and manufacturing company project will be the job-creating catalyst needed to move forward and restore the customer base of so many of the village’s downtown businesses.

On Tuesday the Montgomery County Legislature approved a five-year purchase option agreement with 102 Church Street LLC, the real estate holding company for E29 Labs, a business that has proposed building a $15 million to $30 million cannabis cultivation operation on the eastern portion of the old Beech-Nut property.
