Take Action in Erie, PA

Downtown Master Plan– Erie's Downtown Improvement District, as part of its strategy to provide special services for downtown Erie, joined with the Erie Redevelopment Authority and the City of Erie to create a master plan for the downtown.

Erie Refocused– More than anything else, this Comprehensive Plan is a decision-making guide for a stronger Erie. It offers an approach to taking action that not only differs from traditional practices in the city but enables Erie to make a significant and much-needed course correction. 

Emerge2040– This initiative extends the collaboration that was built through Destination Erie and will work to inspire and catalyze action throughout the Erie Region toward the shared vision for our brighter tomorrow.
