CRANFORD - A developer wants to build a new housing complex in Cranford in a part of town that frequently floods, but some residents aren't happy with the plan.

Opponents say that building a 360-unit complex on Birchwood Avenue, which was underwater after Hurricane Irene, would not be safe and would be an environmental disaster.

Township Committee candidate Andis Kalnins says the development should be in a downtown area where people can walk to restaurants.

Those against the project say they'll continue to fight, with their next stop being the Department of Environmental Protection.
