Lehigh County Commissioners voted in favor 8-1 to add the Northern Lehigh Community Center in Slatington into their capitol improvement plan for approximately $3.5 million: $1.75 million of American Rescue Plan money in 2022. A bond issue for an additional $1.75 million in 2023.
Getting the board to add it to the 2022 fiscal year budget is another hurdle.
