NIZ Waterfront Developer Getting $1 MM From State

You'd think that if the state is allowing you to use almost all state tax revenue to fund future development, that would be enough, right? Wrong. The Waterfront Development Co, one of the NIZ developers in Allentown, has sought and is getting another million from the Commonwealth Financing Authority for "Riverside Road and Trail." The money was approved July 1

In a poverty-stricken city like Allentown, these handouts to the rich are obscene.

Is this the same million dollar grant that Schlossberg is bragging about securing for Allentown?

I'm surprised he took the time from his pushing the LBGT agenda in Harrisburg.

Actually, Bernie, a suggested revision to your headline: NIZ Waterfront Developer Gets $1MM from Taxpayers! It's not really the state but the hard working often exhausted taxpayer who funds these give-a-ways.

More taxpayer ripoffs! The NIZ, it's rich developers and Ed Pawlowski, have created a team for the rich to get richer; all at the expense of the taxpayer. Anybody with any sense left in Allentown, [and there are fewer every year], better wake-up quick and oust these maggots from local government and start over!

Correction: The NIZ, it's rich developers and Pat Browne, have created a team for the rich to get richer; all at the expense of the taxpayer.

While Pawlowski has generated much of the attention, he's really just a distraction, the mastermind of the NIZ was Sen. Browne with an assist from former Rep. Jennifer Mann. Meanwhile the state has passed a spending plan $1 billion short of required revenue necessary to pay for it.

Sen Browne is the complete mastermind of corporate giveaways of taxpayer money while standing in the way of expanding gambling to balance the budget to protect his buddies at the Sands. This guy is the biggest snake that is fleecing the taxpayers of Pa to take care of his local cronies including expanding the CRIZ benefits for Bethlehem developers to become more NIZ-like.

Is it now impossible to do any development or improvement without government money.

I'm confused. "The Jaindle behind the waterfront is NOT the farmer."

Jaindl joins plans to develop Allentown waterfront

"Jaindl Properties, known for turkeys and land projects, announced Tuesday that it will contribute an undisclosed amount of money to develop The Waterfront, an ambitious project below the Tilghman Street Bridge."

Lets not give Jenn Mann so much credit. She loves a free ride and, as being a "yes mann," has found herself a home in Allentown's prestigious West End Rose Garden's. Quite a distance from her daddy's pawn shop business. She served nobody but herself.
