Property owners in the City of Allentown’s Old Allentown Historic District can get information about how to obtain assistance with maintaining and repairing their buildings at a public meeting later this month.

The City of Allentown Historical Architectural Review Board (HARB) is presenting an information session on Thursday, August 17 at 6 PM in the Community Room of Allentown Public Library at 1210 W Hamilton Street. The presentation will have information about the history and significance of the historic district, as well as advice about whom to contact and the procedures required for making alterations to buildings in the historic district. There will also be information about funding and tax incentives which may be available for historic buildings.

The presentation is free of charge, but seating is limited. To register contact David Kimmerly, Chief Planner, City of Allentown at 610-437-7613,

This is the second in a series of information sessions about HARB. The first was held in Old Fairgrounds last month. The same presentation will be made for residents in the West Park Historic District. Date, time and location for the West Park presentation has not been scheduled at this time.
