Here’s the important rationale for the survey!

The City of Bethlehem is preparing a plan to address historic preservation and development issues within the South Bethlehem Historic Conservation District.  This area is generally along the Third and Fourth Street corridors, west of Hayes Street and east of Wyandote Street.  The Plan will recommend revisions to the City’s Historic Conservation District regulations that currently regulate demolition of older buildings, changes to the fronts of buildings, and the exterior design of new buildings and additions.  There also are expected to be recommended adjustments to the City’s Zoning Ordinance.  There will be public meetings held in the upcoming months.
