$10M for DaVinci Center

Tuesday, December 12, 2017 by BERNIE O’HARE APECIAL TO THE BETHLEHEM PRESS in Local News

Northampton County Council voted Dec. 7 to award $10 million in hotel taxes for a new Easton-based DaVinci Science Center. But it’s unclear whether this $130 million project, whose centerpiece is a salt water aquarium, will ever see any of this money. This grant is the dying gasp of a lame duck council. Ken Kraft has already promised to repeal this measure once a new Council is seated next month.
