Bamford Takes Allentown Improvement Job

ALLENTOWN PA – “A flood of new development in Allentown’s Neighborhood Improvement Zone has brought office buildings, apartment complexes and shops, but the 130-acre zone has yet to hook its first big tenant from out-of-state. Making that happen will soon be the job of Steve Bamford, a Pottstown business leader and former Allentown economic development official,” the Allentown Morning Call reported Tuesday (Dec. 6, 2016).

Reporter Matt Assad wrote that Bamford was “named the new executive director of the Allentown Neighborhood Improvement Zone Development Authority” by its board.”
