Southside’s Tomorrow is a partnership between the City of Bethlehem and Community Action Development Bethlehem, a subsidiary of nonprofit Community Action Lehigh Valley.
The initiative focuses on ways to integrate the needs and wants of current residents into long-term sustainable solutions that both modernize and preserve the integrity of the Southside community. We incorporate an emphasis on youth development, community engagement, public spaces, housing advocacy, and urban agriculture to build a meaningful and sustainable environment for residents and future generations.
Southside’s Tomorrow is guided by a six-year master plan, which was developed through a comprehensive, community-engaged process.
Southside Proud is a campaign created for and by the community. We want to celebrate the good and beauty of our unique community. We also recognize that we cannot overlook the issues that are impacting us. Use this space to voice both your love and concerns of the communities you reside in. We want to hear your stories, experiences and concerns of the Southside.
