The Department of Engineering, Construction Services, Code Enforcement and Community Development consists of four divisions and several boards, all related to the overall development of the Township. The Department includes engineering, planning, zoning, conservation, community development, construction services, affordable housing and code enforcement. It also provides administrative services to the Planning Board, Zoning Board of Adjustment and the Environmental Commission. The purpose of these divisions and boards is to promote and ensure the reasonable and appropriate use of our lands and environmental resources.
The Division of Construction Services reviews and inspects building construction plans and activities. The main responsibility of this division is to ensure all aspects of building, including plumbing, electrical and structural elements are built in accordance with the strict standards found in the New Jersey Uniform Construction Code. This code is under constant review by the state based on research from various studies. Township inspectors stay current through mandatory training on the latest codes to ensure that all new buildings and renovations are constructed as safely as possible.
