Housing officials in Red Bank are preparing legal action against a Cedar Crossing homeowner they say has both illegally sublet her condo and skipped years of fee payments.

Red Bank residents offered those and other suggestions as the process of shaping a new waterfront park out of the former town dump got underway with a community brainstorming session last Thursday night.
Red Bank officials took another step toward the creation of a long-anticipated new park on the site of the former landfill and incinerator this week.
They also got some promises of help.
Press release from Red Bank Affordable Housing Corporation
The new Cedar Crossing affordable housing development will be ready for its close-up on the afternoon of Saturday, September 27, when Red Bank Affordable Housing Corporation hosts an Open House session between the hours of 12 to 4 pm.
Representatives from the organization presided over by Rev. Terrence K. Porter of Pilgrim Baptist Church will be on hand to show prospective homeowners around a model unit. Cedar Crossing is located just off Cedar Street, one block from the intersection of South Bridge Avenue and Drs. James Parker Boulevard.
It took a little longer than expected, but the Cedar Crossing affordable housing project is a done deal. Just needs to be built.
The Red Bank Affordable Housing Corporation closed on the property, right, Wednesday, and by this morning, workers started turning soil on the two-acre tract at Catherine, Cedar and River streets.
“The first feeling that came to mind, the emotion, was relief,” said Rev. Terrence K. Porter, pastor of the Pilgrim Baptist Church and head of the borough’s housing corporation.
