Many shore municipalities, including Ocean City, are now adopting the Preliminary Work Flood Maps promulgated by FEMA as the official Flood Insurance Rate Maps (or "FIRM") of the municipality. These maps contain areas known as "Coastal A" zones that may be subject to waves of 1.5 feet or more. The state building code now has requirements for construction in these zones that become effective once the maps are officially adopted as the municipal FIRM.
Congratulations to our partner Steve Nehmad for receiving the Distinguished Foundation Board Member Award at Atlantic Cape Community College’s recent commencement ceremony.
In a long-awaited decision affecting residential homebuilders throughout the state, the New Jersey Supreme Court ruled today that municipalities are responsible for meeting affordable housing needs which accumulated during the 16-year so-called "gap period" (1999 to 2015). During this time COAH failed to adopt regulations consistent with the state's fair housing laws. At stake were tens of thousands of affordable housing units, which must now be addressed by municipalities in their affordable housing compliance plans. It means that developers will now have the ability to construct many more housing units in the state.
