Under Municipal Ordinance No. 14-36 as amended, buildings and related structures must be secured and maintained so as not to reduce the neighborhood’s quality of life. 

Abandoned properties, particularly those located within urban areas or in close proximity to occupied residences and businesses, create a wide range of problems for the communities, in which they are located, fostering criminal activity, creating public health problems and otherwise diminishing the quality of life for residents and business operators in those areas. Abandoned properties diminish the property values of neighboring properties and have a negative effect on the quality of life of adjacent property owners, increasing the risk of property damage through arson and vandalism and discouraging neighborhood stability and revitalization.

For these reasons, abandoned properties are presumptively considered to be nuisances, in view of their negative effects on nearby properties and the residents or users of those properties. The continued presence of abandoned properties in Neptune Township acts as a significant barrier to revitalization.


Registration for properties that are deemed vacant and or abandoned is due every year that the property is in such status. The registration deadline is January 2nd. of each year.
