Homes With More Than 50% Damage

Because of the ramifications of being declared over 50% damaged, the Borough Flood Plain Officer is reviewing all homes that ARE NOT on the under 50% list.   The Flood Plain Officer’s review includes homes that are no longer there.  If you believe that your home is more than 50% damaged or less than 50% damaged and not on the list, you can send your justification in writing to the Borough Flood Plain Officer at:

Hatch Mott MacDonald
3 Paragon Way
Freehold NJ 07728

Attn: Borough of Mantoloking Flood Plain Officer

Ultimately, if your home is declared more than 50% damaged by the Flood Plain Officer, your home will be considered “SUBSTANTIALLY DAMAGED.”

This means that your house will need to be either demolished or will need to be brought up to current requirements (or future building requirements, depending on when adopted by the Borough Council).


If you decide to demolish your home, you should consider the Private Property Debris Removal and Demo program offered by FEMA.

If you decide to privately demolish your home, please be advised that you will need a permit for demolition and you should consult the Construction Department at Boro Hall for guidance.

Demolition permit fees will be waived until May 1, 2013.


BUILDING CODE COMPLIANCE: Please be advised that you will have to comply with all aspects of the flood and construction codes that are currently being amended by the Planning Board. The Council will be acting upon the Planning Board recommendations soon. Once the details are finalized, they will be posted on this website.

PERMITS: All permit fees as determined by Borough Ordinance will apply to substantially damaged homes that are being restored.
