CACLV INTRODUCES ITS “PRIORITY BLOCKS” STRATEGY FOR UPSIDE ALLENTOWN

Tenth Street’s 200 Block is the First of What the Nonprofit’s Leaders Hope Will Be More

On Tuesday, October 15, at 1:30 PM, the Community Action Committee of the Lehigh Valley will introduce its honed strategy for housing-heavy neighborhood revitalization. The nonprofit community development organization will be holding a press conference to introduce the strategy and how it will be funded. Wayne Barz, President of the Board of Directors of CACLV, will announce the project and staff of the agency will present details on the sources of funding, the kinds of work that will be done on the block and how this project fits the broader strategy for the Upside neighborhood.

Mayor Ray O’Connell will be present to offer comments. In addition, residents of the block who will benefit directly or indirectly will be offering their thoughts on the project. The press briefing will take place indoors at 220 North Tenth Street in the city.
