Toms River Township encourages residents to rebuild their homes, and as such, residents seeking to rebuild within the same footprint will be permitted to do so. Contact the Planning office for further info and details. Their office is located at Town Hall and can be reached at (732) 341-1000, ext. 8354

IMPORTANT:  On 11/27/12, the Township received notification from FEMA that new preliminary flood elevation maps will be issued by FEMA on or about DECEMBER 12, 2012. Based on this new information and in light of the short time frame involved, the Township strongly recommends that property owners review the new flood elevation maps once they are issued, prior to moving forward with their rebuilding plans.
