What Is Your Vision for Allentown’s Hamilton Street?


As part of the new Main Street Program for Allentown’s Hamilton District — which hired its first manager this past spring — an expert national design team will be in town next week to help develop a vision for the Hamilton Street area and the broader downtown. Assembled by the American Institute of Architects (AIA), this Sustainable Design Assessment Team will meet with local officials and the public, and provide recommendations across a variety of planning topics.

This design team’s visit will include two evening sessions intended to foster public participation. A public input session will be held the evening of Monday, September 27, from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. at Allentown BrewWorks, 3rd Floor. The design team will present its findings — based on a three-day visit — on Wednesday, September 29, from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. at the Baum School of Art.

Additional details can be found on this program flier or on the City’s website. For more information, contact Lauren Giguere, Allentown’s Deputy Director of Community & Economic Development, at 610-439-5965 or giguere@allentowncity.org.
