Open space planning has been actively discussed in Bethlehem for over a decade. It was identified as a goal in the 2005 Comprehensive Plan, and has been raised in Town Board discussions and by a number of advisory committees. Due to interest in the community to learn more about open space planning we are providing links to the recent Town Board discussions and related documents.
This page will be updated as further information becomes available.
