Nice to see RenewLV out with a post supporting the Allentown NIZ, albeit *after* the controversy is totally moot.
Under Steven Bliss, the focus of that organization was all about building toward a regional tax base, and regional funding for public services. The NIZ fight was a marquee moment for these issues. It was the key fight for advocates of regionalism to be engaged with over the past several months. I really will never understand why Renew thought anything else they were working on was more important than this.
