Welcome to the website of Carl E. Peters, P.E., P.L.S.
We are proud to provide a website containing information of interest to design professionals, code enforcement personnel, contractors, attorneys, municipal officials, property owners and business people alike. Our emphasis will be on how we can work together to get things built in the State of New Jersey.
We’ve started by creating a basic guide to the process of obtaining local building and zoning approvals. It is our hope that this guide will give the uninitiated a glimpse into a process that many people find to be confusing, slow and costly. While we can’t demystify the process completely, possibly this overview will help some to avoid some costly mistakes. We’ve tried to keep the guide simple so that it may be of help beginners but would welcome suggestions from other professionals.

News from Carl E. Peters, LLC
Carl E. Peters has been closely following a number of topics that have been in the New Jersey news this year, including:
Sidewalk Repairs - Some New Jersey Municipalities are inspecting sidewalks and sending repair notices to property owners with defective walks. The property owners are directed to make repairs or be subjected to being fined or paying for the cost of repairs performed by a municipal contractor. Who is responsible for sidewalk conditions and who is liable if someone is injured?
Accessibility - Since 1992, towns have been required to have a plan to eliminate barriers for the disabled yet few have completed all the necessary improvements. Several lawsuits have been filed against New Jersey Municipalities by advocates for the disabled. Are these frivolous lawsuits or are state, county and municipal governments delinquent in their obligations?
Infrastructure repairs - New Jersey roads, sewers and water systems are deteriorating at an increasing rate. Neither the governments or public utilities responsible for their maintenance seem to have a viable plan for maintaining our critical infrastructure. With cap laws now in place for local governments, how will towns respond to the laws of nature.
