Lehigh Valley job seekers will soon have a new resource in Allentown.

Mayor Ed Pawlowski and other city officials announced Thursday that the Allentown Employment and Training Center will open on Sept. 3.

The center, located at Lehigh Carbon Community College's downtown campus on Hamilton Street, will offer information about employment and training opportunities within the Neighborhood Improvement Zone, which is a special tax zone in downtown Allentown.
