Community Concerns

Continuing complaints about the Nazareth School District not keeping the gate on 4th Street closed and sending parent traffic through a residential neighborhood.

A resident who’d benefited from the CDBG program asked for a subordination agreement. Township staff said they’d be happy to help as soon as they got the paperwork from the mortgage company.


Supervisors voted to approve a study to bond roads targeted in the PennEast Pipeline Project at a cost between $1,000 – $10,000 (Penn Dixie, Georgetown, Gun Club and a few others are on the list). The bonding will help recoup the costs of fixing the roads after the construction vehicles destroy them.

  • The proposed path is available on the PennEast Pipeline website for anyone who’s curious about how the project will affect our township

An ordinance will be published in the Express Times this weekend concerning traffic changes to Friedenstahl Avenue. The speed limit between 5th Street and Tatamy road will change to 25 mph.

A map of Upper Nazareth Township was presented.  Official adoption will require a review by the Lehigh Valley Planning Commission and an ordinance to be passed by July 1st.

The Supervisors voted to approve adding Penn Allen Road to the Snow Emergency Route.
