According to WFMZ-TV69's John Craven, Allentown had made another concession in its attempt to negotiate a municipal lawsuit challenging its controversial NIZ.
Hanover and Bethlehem Townships have previously rejected a proposal under which Allentown offered to return the EIT of current township residents currently working inside the NIZ. But it would still keep the taxes for future workers lured there as a result of poaching that NIZ developer J.B. Reilly denies.
Allentown has apparently caved on the future EIT, although it still wants some of it.
Of course, this proposal does nothing to prevent the poaching that NIZ developer Reilly denies.
The only businesses inside the NIZ have been drawn from other areas of the Lehigh Valley, including Allentown itself.
