Waterfront district zoning revised

Thursday, March 14, 2013 by PAUL CMIL Special to The Press in Local News

In December, a council meeting room full of residents celebrated following Catasauqua Borough Council's 5-2 vote to agree to a contract with developer Weston Solutions to develop the property along Front Street now owned by FL Smidth.

It now seems the celebration may have been premature, as opponents of the development may add roadblocks to the approval process.

The agreement would make way for the borough to move administrative, fire, police and public works facilities to part of the property, with the rest to be developed for housing.
