I hope Whitehall’s plan to revitalize the the southern portion of MacArthur road comes to fruition. I really hope the art deco facade of the Lehigh Valley Dairy is saved from demolition.
I think it’s asinine that some Lehigh Valley townships, including Whitehall, are suing to halt Allentown’s downtown arena project. In Whitehall’s case, a consulting group paid by the township to develop a revitalization plan said “Nearby investments, such as the ice arena in downtown Allentown, will also help drive the revitalization eﬀorts as more trips are to be planned using this [Whitehall’s] corridor.”
Can’t have it both ways, Whitehall. The law that diverts tax money back to Allentown to develop the arena disctric is either fair to you or isn’t. If your development pros are saying what Allentown is saying (the whole region will benefit from Allentown’s revitalization), you might want to consider the money you’re going to spend on this lawsuit.
