Ok, now let me get this straight. The only reason you build a new school is becasue the enrollment increases. Could it be that the Lincoln Building being 100 years old had something to do with this? The new high school wasn't built with space for increased enrollment, it was built to fill the needs of the current enrollment. Catty graduate 120 kids in 1964 (Larry Miller's class)and 125 kids last year. So in 45 years the graduating number haven't changed much. So what is the surprise. The new high school was not built with extra classrooms to take care of the overflow of kids in 2020. Wake up.To Storm, I do not see an increased enrollment in the district, how can that be? We are landlocked, remember? As they cannot build a new school in Catasauqua, nor can there be any more new houses in the borough, either. No new houses, no new residents in borough, they just bought townhouses on Lenape Circle, and houses on Race Street, which are knocked down. The townhouses on Willowbrook never happened, where is the increased enrollment? From Allentown moving in on Front St., they move in and out so fast.
As far as new homes are concerned, in South Catty a new development was built behind Tioga St.- 20 homes. In North Catty, Wyandotte St. was added with about 8 homes. In North Catty, Keglovits has put up homes in every empty lot. A new apt. building is being built off Howertown Road. The North Catty high rise was built and when seniors moved there, their houses became avaialble for families with kids. Since you are going back to the townhouses that were stopped by the airport, I can add, Allendale Apt. and the aprt. at the top of Troxel St. in hanover Township. Across the street from Sheckler, 5 homes are now there and land is for sale for an additonal four homes. However, the biggest growth comes in terms of commerce from the businesses in Hanover Township. Landlocked it is, but Catty has increased in the number of units from the days of Larry Miller.
