Navigation Bullet Repairs to Substantially Damaged Structures

If your home or business incurred damage, the Construction Department will need to determine if your structure has been substantially damaged. Substantially damaged means the cost to make your necessary repairs will meet or exceed 50% of the value of the structure. In Lavallette, we use the assessed value to make that determination.

If you structure is substantially damaged, you may qualify for additional insurance money through the FEMA Increased Cost of Compliance Program (ICC).

A form is attached for your reference and will need to be completed and submitted to the Construction Code Official in order for him to make the determination. Substantial Damage Form Pdf File

Caution should be exercised when submitting this form. If a determination is made that your property did sustain substantial damage (50% or more) you will be required, along with the other needed repairs, to raise the structure in compliance with the Borough’s flood hazard ordinance.

Navigation Bullet Meter Requirements for JCP&L Customers

To safely maintain its facilities, provide reliable service and help obtain accurate meter readings, JCP&L asks that customers provide easy and unobstructed access to its electric meters.  To assist with this, JCP&L is offering the following information regarding newly approved meter connection guidelines to customers who are rebuilding or elevating homes located in coastal areas identified as FEMA flood zones: 

  • Meter heights cannot exceed 60 inches above a horizontal surface.  Acceptable surfaces include decks featuring permanent fixed stairs at least 36 inches wide.
  • Minimum clearances for the meter socket for overhead and underground construction are 42 inches across, 48 inches in front and 15 inches on each side of the meter socket.
  • Decks must be constructed to meet all applicable JCP&L standards, National Electrical Safety Code, National Electric Code (NEC), Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and local building code requirements. 
  • JCP&L must review and approve the point of attachment prior to construction, and encourages customers to contact JCP&L prior to submitting plans to builders or municipal authorities.

Safety is a top priority for JCP&L and in order to protect its customers and facilities, the company requests that property owners contact them before any construction that involves utility lines.  JCP&L can advise customers early in the process on minimum clearances that are required. 

Please see the attached documents for detailed drawings of meter installation requirements and meter landings.
