The City of Allentown’s new Comprehensive and Economic Development Plan – Allentown Vision 2030 is on-line.
The city launched its website, AllentownVision2030.org, today. AllentownVision2030.org will be a key resource for all content, updates, and events related to the development of Allentown Vision 2030.
Allentown Vision 2030 – Your City, Your Voice! is the city’s new Comprehensive and Economic Development Plan that will chart a path for inclusive, equitable growth over the next ten years. The plan will address the topics of housing, workforce development, economic opportunity, social equity, environment and conservation, community development, transportation, land use, historic preservation, open space, and a range of other concerns that affect the quality of life and vibrancy of the City of Allentown.
There will be four citywide community collaboration meetings over the coming 12 months to engage with Allentown Vision 2030 and contribute to the development of the plan. The first citywide community collaboration will be on Tuesday, November 13 from 6:00-8:00pm at the Eastside Youth Center located at 1140 E Clair Street, Allentown PA 18109.
The event will be the first of many opportunities for the community to participate in the development of Allentown Vision 2030 and help shape the plan. The event is child-friendly and light refreshments will be served.
The community can learn more and collaborate with the city in a number of ways – via AllentownVision2030.org, Allentown Vision 2030 - Your City, Your Voice! Facebook, Instagram, and Youtube pages, by attending one of the four citywide community collaborations, and other planned opportunities to share priorities, recommendations, and feedback throughout the development of the update.
Allentown has engaged the consultant teams of Fourth Economy, EvolveEA and Faces International in an innovative approach to create a plan that reflects the community’s priorities and provides a clear and feasible implementation strategy.
Allentown Vision 2030 – Your City, Your Voice! is expected to be completed by December 2019.
