Take notice that on August 7, 2017, the Department of Community Affairs proposed amendments at N.J.A.C. 5:23, the Uniform Construction Code, at 49 N.J.R. 2327(a), to revise regulations regarding minor work and ordinary maintenance, categories of work that require less oversight than does full permit construction.  The proposal also amended the definition of minor work (N.J.A.C. 5:23-1.4) and timeframe for performing an inspection (N.J.A.C. 5:23-17A).

Pursuant to requests from the City of Summit; the Township of Scotch Plains; Toms River Fire Districts 1 and 2; the NJ Plumbing Inspectors Association; and municipal officials from the Borough of Seaside Heights, in accordance with N.J.A.C. 1:30-5.5, the Department will hold a public hearing to seek comments on the proposed amendments to the Uniform Construction Code, N.J.A.C. 5:23, regarding ordinary maintenance and minor work.

The Department will meet at 10 am on Wednesday November 29, 2017 to hold a public hearing on the proposed amendments.  This hearing will be held at the New Jersey Department of Community Affairs, William Ashby Building, at 101 South Broad Street, Room 129, Trenton, New Jersey.  Persons who wish to testify at the hearing should contact Kathleen Asher at 609-292-6420 or kathleen.asher@dca.nj.gov.  Any person requiring special accommodations, such as a sign-language interpreter, should contact Ms. Asher on or before November 22, 2017.
