Lehighton Assessment Report - October 4, 2013 (.pdf)

In August 2013, Lehighton Borough had the pleasure of hosting the National Main Street Center Assessment Team. The team had conducted meetings and interviews with individuals and groups, toured the community, conducted an on-site assessment of the commercial district and reviewed background information on the Borough. The report was provided to the Borough through a Smart Growth Grant awarded to the Carbon County Board of Realtors by the National Association of Realtors. The recommendations in the assessment utilizes the comprehensive Main Street Four Point Approach.

Strategies on the following issues were identified by the Borough as key to revitalizing the downtown district:

  • Reduction in the number of vacancies in downtown commercial buildings
  • Encouraging investment in downtown commercial properties
  • Development of the riverfront area and integration with the downtown commercial district
  • Improving the appearance and functionality of the 1st Street corridor including the “gateways” into downtown
  • Development of organizational capacity and sustainable district management initiatives

Borough representatives are very excited to be working with the National Main Street Center, National Association of Realtors, Carbon County Realtors Association, Carbon County Chamber of Commerce/Economic Development and Lehighton Downtown Initiative Committee. For more information, please contact the Borough Office.”
