The Bureau of Planning and Zoning works with the entire community to create a vision for the future of Bethlehem. We attempt to carry out this vision to create a vibrant and sustainable community for the benefit of both current and future generations. Planning is the process of creating long-term visions for places and communities as small as an intersection and as large as a region of the city. The Bureau is a unified, high-performance team that guides land use, zoning and preservation of historic structures, and promotes the comprehensive growth and well-being of the City and its neighborhoods.
