BASD nixes plan to lease part of Rose Garden as parking lot

BETHLEHEM, Pa. - It looks like Bethlehem's Rose Garden won't be doing a stint as a parking lot.

The city's school district had proposed leasing a portion of the park to alleviate parking problems during renovations to Nitschmann Middle School.

But a number of residents spoke out about it -- said they weren't too keen on those plans.

So now, the district is saying, forget the whole thing!

The Nitschmann renovation project is expected to take three years.
