SAVE CREEK ROAD
Local Neighbor Comment: "Flood plain regulations exist to not only protect the neighboring houses, but they protect water run off, debris and flooding downstream. It is irresponsible to allow relief, at tax payers expense, for what is clearly of financial benefit to one individual"
On October 6th, The Bethlehem City Council voted 7-0 against the developer's request to rezone 2105 Creek Road to allow him to build 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. This is a big win for our community and we want to thank you for your support!
Even though the developer lost the zoning request, he still wants to develop the land.
The Bethlehem Zoning Hearing Board will be meeting on December 9th to review the Developer's request for a Use Variance to permit Single-Family Semi-Detached Dwellings on the 2105 Creek Road Property still in the flood zone. This meeting will be held virtually. It is very important that we show the same support against granting any variances at the December 9th meeting. Please read Lower Saucon Townships letter in opposition to the variance request READ Please let the Zoning Hearing Board know what you think.
