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 there are other areas in the town where the activity could take place.

Some other towns have adopted ordinances to block taping.
