22 N 7th

Thoughts on the proposed building at 22 N 7th --> Allentown has lots of apartments that are very cheap we know the quality is very low. Would you live there?

We support using public funds to buy / demo / green space as many as possible. Try to connect them to the park system ... How about a hike, bike or a horse trail in city center.

We support 22 N 7th moving forward.

Get creative and supportive! Change the status.

Seventh Street Shines!

Today was a great success - when you have an opportunity take a walk North on Seventh starting from Hamilton. We worked on the section from Hamilton to Linden and it was looking great.
