BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ - Any person who owns or rents property within Berkeley Heights can now sign up for their residence to be included on the Township’s new “No Knock” list. Signup is available online on the clerks’ office page on the township website. There is no charge for registering your residence.
The Berkeley Heights Township Council recently joined the growing number of New Jersey towns establishing a “No Knock list,” amending its existing ordinance regarding licenses for peddlers, solicitors, and canvassers.
It is important to note that the revised ordinance continues to allow for some organizations and/or groups to continue to “knock”. Specifically, charitable, religious, political or other nonprofit groups or individuals, including schools, civic organizations and service clubs may continue to spread information, advocate for a cause, solicit signatures in support of a cause, solicit donations or charitable contributions or conduct sales of personal property for a charitable purpose. Residences cannot elect to be exempt from lawful door-to-door business.
