Pelican Island and Berkley Say No to Snooki, JWoww and MTV

After a lengthy debate over whether Snooki and company should be able to film at a house on Pelican Island, Berkley Township, a decision has been reached.

Township officials have determined that the taping of the the MTV show “Snooki and JWoww” violates township ordinances. As a result, a violation notice is being issued to the property’s owner, Mike Loundy of Point Pleasant Beach.

Township Administrator Christopher Reid said Thursday that the township’s zoning officer has determined the home is being used for a commercial operation and thus is in violation of township ordinance.

Last week, 495 Productions, the producers of the show, started to tape the reality show starring Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and Jennifer “JWoww” Farley at 515 Sunset Drive South.

The township does not have a film permit ordinance and the township was notified by Loundy of the show’s plans to tape at the home, which is zoned strictly for residential use, according to Mayor Carmen F. Amato. Some residents of Pelican Island had voiced their concerns about the show at the Township Council on Monday.

Reid said that a letter will be mailed to Loundy Friday informing him that the taping was in violation of township ordinances. Reid said that Loundy would have 10 days to address the violation, which could shut down production at the residence.

The show is also utilizing a residence at 300 Carteret Avenue in Seaside Heights, which is owned by former councilman and current borough public affairs officer Michael Gracien. It is believed that JWoww and her fiance may be living in that residence as part of this season’s show.

Loundy also owned the Ocean Terrace beach house used for the taping of “Jersey Shore” in Seaside Heights that concluded its run after five seasons last year.
