Project Overview: Elevate Erie is an update to the Comprehensive Plan and the Transportation Mobility Plan (TMP).

The updated and integrated plans will provide a foundation for Erie to continue to thrive, while elevating the Town’s quality of life into the future. Elevate Erie will provide longer term guidance for the community around growth, land use, multimodal transportation, housing, design and community character, parks and open spaces, tourism and recreation, sustainability and resilience, and economic development, among other topics.

Erie’s current Comprehensive Plan was adopted in 2005 and updated in 2015. The Transportation Plan was last updated in 2018. Since the last updates, the Town has continued to change, not only as the result of growth and development, but also due to changing priorities and evolving values of the community. To ensure our plan represents an accurate, comprehensive, and inclusive vision for the Town’s future, Elevate Erie will focus on key topics such as:

  • Mobility and enhanced transportation options
  • Sustainability and resilience
  • Affordable housing
  • Diversity, equity, and inclusion
  • Other topics identified by the community

  • Thank you for participating in the Elevate Erie Comprehensive Plan process! (Why are we updating the Comprehensive Plan? See FAQs here.)

     Policies in the Comprehensive Plan will guide the Town and community in the years to come. Town departments have drafted policies based on existing conditions analysis, community engagement feedback, and best practices, and are now seeking input on policy goals that are most important to you. Goals are sorted into chapters corresponding to major topic areas that impact life in Erie, such as Housing, Economic Vitality, and Natural Resources. 

    Each question represents a different chapter of the Comprehensive Plan.  You can find example policies below each goal in the provided image. Please indicate up to 2 policy goals, per question, that are most important to you. Your input will help Town staff in the implementation of the Comprehensive Plan after it is adopted.

    Please see the Community Engagement handout for the engagement materials shared at in-person events, including more information about land use and transportation. Town staff will be available to discuss policy goals and answer questions in person at 12 pop-up events from July 24th - August 12, 2024. 

    Note: The Town is simultaneously working on an update to the Transportation & Mobility Plan (TMP). Transportation policies and recommendations are being finalized and are expected to be adopted in Fall 2024.
