Developer Abraham Atiyeh has submitted to the City of Bethlehem a request to have acreage he owns at 2105 Creek Road rezoned from rural residential (RR) to residential retirement complex (RRC). If rezoned, Atiyeh plans construction of a 40-unit apartment complex with 60 parking spaces on the property, which is spread across low-lying, flood plain ground between the Saucon Creek, Friedensville and Creek roads.
The developer has also submitted plans for 10 twin homes in the flood plain and will be asking for variances from the zoning hearing board. This type of development has many of the same issues as the rezoning. This website was developed to keep the community informed and not let land be developed that was not meant to be.
