Bethlehem ZHB Has No Appeals For Second Time in a Year

Bethlehem's Zoning Hearing Board was scheduled to meet last night, and I arrived at Town Hall at the appointed hour. But aside from a zoning groupie named Warren who tells me loves the humor at zoning hearings, I was the only one there. Chairman Gus Loupos told me that there were no appeals and they had a rare night off. This could be a sign that Bethlehem's new zoning ordinance is working or that the real estate market is in the tank.

I showed up for the Stone Post Curative Amendment in Lower Nazareth, to find it was postponed. I should have called. I've never heard a curative amendment argued, and this project is controversial. Looks like we made similar errors, but I wouldn't have written a scintillating write-up afterwards.

That's because you're sane.

@12:06 Thank you! I have been off a day for three days!!! I thought today was the 4th, and yesterday was the 3rd. Doh. No wonder there was no meeting yesterday. I need to go look - I didn't see any news articles. There should be something out there.

Looks like nobody covered it. So much for public outcry.
