New Jersey shore town nixes Snooki taping

BERKELEY TOWNSHIP, N.J.
(AP) — A New Jersey town trying to rebuild from Superstorm Sandy is
pulling the plug on taping of the MTV show “Snooki & JWoww.”

Berkeley
Township officials say taping the “Jersey Shore” spinoff is a
commercial enterprise, which would violate zoning ordinances. The town
has notified the property's owner that the home is in an area zoned for
residential use.

Residents in the Pelican Island neighborhood
hired a lawyer after learning about the taping in the rented home. They
fear it would disrupt efforts to get their lives back to normal as they
try to restore their homes damaged by Sandy.

Attorney Ron Gasiorowski tells the Asbury Park Press (http://on.app.com/15PN7d9 ) there are other areas in the town where the activity could take place.

Some other towns have adopted ordinances to block taping.
