DEMO WORK BEGINS AT BLIGHTED CORNER

Demolition of a former filling station and two vacant homes got underway Thursday in preparation for construction of the Courtyards at Monmouth, a 57-unit housing project approved in April for Monmouth, West and Oakland streets in Red Bank.

Mandy Hanigan, an Oakland Street resident, tells redbankgreen that while she’s happy that owner Amboy Bank is cleaning up the eyesore lot, “we should have been given notice as to the day it would start so we could shut our windows. Not to mention with the hurricane coming who knows what will be flying around in the wind now.”
