Couple that with Allentown's NIZ likely to get new rules forcing future applicants to go through additional steps by requiring "projects to abide by new design standards,". In other words kiss our patootie if you're not rich and well connected.
In my opinion this whole shame is nothing more then 'trickle down economics'.
It was never meant to help small business owners or current residents.
Any business owners foolish enough to think they would get by with cheap rents may experience other costs which might outweigh the advantages of having them.
