New Jersey Considering Facade Legislation

Two new bills were introduced in the Senate and Assembly in New Jersey last month proposing the requirement for periodic inspection of exterior walls of certain buildings.

Bill A-3895 (Diegnan/Amodeo) and Bill S-2771 (Norcross/Kean, S.) are strongly based on Philadelphia’s new facade ordinance and each recommend phasing required inspections and reports on the construction date of the building.

The Assembly Housing and Local Government Committee will meet on Thursday, May 5, 2011 at 2:00 pm in Committee Room 16, 4th Floor, State House Annex, Trenton, NJ.

The Senate committee meeting on 5/12; time and location to follow.
