Bethlehem is drawing up a new blueprint for affordable housing in the city.
A new plan targets two sites. One of them is the old St. Stanislaus Catholic Church on Hayes Street. A Lansdale-based company wants to tear down the rectory and build 28 one- and two-bedroom apartments in its place.
The sanctuary would be converted into a community space and art gallery.
The company also wants to build a three-story building with 18 two- and three-bedroom apartments at a site on Atlantic Street.
The plans will be discussed at a zoning hearing board meeting next week.
