Economic Development & Business Resources
Whether you’re choosing a neighborhood for your business, or trying to identify the best use for a property that you own, the City of Bethlehem Department of Community & Economic Development can help. The city’s staff can help identify appropriate locations or neighborhoods for a business, propose locations that best meet their needs, help existing businesses locate larger facilities or additional locations, and review potential sites under consideration by a business to identify any issues before a lease or sale. The staff can also provide maps of incentive zones such as the Enterprise Zone, KIZ, LERTA, and CRIZ, and confirm eligibility for these services and programs.
The City of Bethlehem works with entrepreneurs and business owners in developing their business ideas. The city’s experienced staff can guide you through the vast number of State financing programs and grants available to business. Other assistance includes help with determining licenses, permits and regulatory requirements, available financing, workforce development, marketing, and any other steps necessary to build and maintain a vibrant business climate.
