Our current major effort,
LVIP VII, is
the development of 1,000 acres of former
industrial property on the site of Bethlehem Steel
Corporation, in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. LVIP's efforts to
date have earned it the Governor's 2005 Award for Environmental
Excellence, and the nationally recognized 2006 Phoenix Award
presented by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)
for excellence in brownfield redevelopment.
Our Community can benefit in many ways by
redeveloping brownfield areas. With our new development,
LVIP VII, we are addressing environmental concerns of the
former Bethlehem Steel site, bringing in new jobs, providing
taxes for the municipalities, and preventing the loss of
farmland to urban sprawl.
