Township joins fight against hockey arena's Neighborhood Improvement Zone

Mar 19, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: WFMZ

With no public discussion, Bethlehem Township commissioners unanimously voted Monday night to join their Northampton County neighbor, Hanover Township, in a legal challenge of a state law that allows Allentown to keep some of their tax revenue to pay for its hockey arena complex.

<quoted text>Smart enough to pull the wool over alot of people's eyes and if she's so smart, why did she need her husband to get her such a good job. Just what we need, another lobbyist. And if her "firm" is pumping 10's of millions into that hell hole, why do they need money from the outlying smaller communities. The whole thing really smells, just like Aholetown.
The outlying "communities" will benefit from tax cuts in the future, more potential businesses will start or move to there area as a result of this revitalization in Allentown, and their property values are going to skyrocket in ten years. When Allentown does good.......everyone does good. What the suing municipalities are doing now is going to be a template of what NOT TO DO while trying to revitalize American cities. We will look back and laugh at the fact these lesser municipalities tried to sue and stop American progression. What a joke.

What tax cut? What are you talking about? Property values skyrocketing? Allentown will never have that effect on the rest of the area. And you are the joke thinking they will.

FACT: The Arena is going to cut your taxes and up your property value there in Bethlehem and you hate it. And you hate that fact that potentially Allentowns housing market will rival yours. Get used to it, this is the "remake" of Allentown, Pa. And we are gonna throw it in your faces after this weak lawsuit is done with.

That's business as usual down there. I see it daily. One thing is sure - arena or no arena, the local crimals aren't leaving.

She is now a lobbyist for the firm pumping tens of millions of dollars into Allentown. Pat and his wife are two very smart people. Smart enough to put this tax zone into place with knowing a lawsuit might occur as a result, but will not hold up in court. I believe the municipalities are suing out of "jealousy" if you will that Allentown has a complete revitalization plan that will not fail. The tax zone legislation was passed in 2009, and we are seing the envy of it being put to use now by these lesser municipalities suing. At the ribbon cutting ceremonies for the Arean, Pat Browne will be there and look at his accomplishments along with mayor Ed Pawlowski. This is a template for other cities, big or small, in America.
Honestly, how do you sleep at night?

It is his job. He is AKA Future Downtown Arena Attendee.

BTW your beloved PB was not necessarily forthright about his shortcomings when reelected AO.
