Walking Tour promotion

The Town is exploring ways to revamp infrastructure in Downtown Erie to meet the future needs of this growing area. Aided by your input and ideas, we'll answer the questions of "what's next?" for Downtown Erie.

The effort kicks off with a series of walking tours (in-person or virtually) of the specific areas and topics up for consideration. These tours are led by the Town of Erie Economic Development Team.


In-Person Tours - July only
The Downtown Infrastructure Improvements effort will evaluate and forecast the changing needs of our Town and involve you, our residents and stakeholders, in the conversation. We want to understand what is important to you as we look to the future. The key to this effort will be open, transparent dialogue about how to balance our priorities with limited resources.

In-person tours are available in July on select Saturdays, Tuesday mornings, and Thursday evenings. Or, tour any time virtually from the comfort of your home. Visit the webpage to RSVP.

Virtual Tour
The virtual tour guides you along nine stops in Downtown Erie. View the images associated with an explanation of each stop alongside the map of Downtown. Begin your Virtual Tour of Downtown Improvements, and then come back here to begin the budget simulation!


Key Improvements
The Erie Economic Development Team began an in-depth look at our current infrastructure, the rapidly evolving demographics of our region, and future trends and best practices and identified a handful of scenarios for the public, stakeholders, and ultimately the Board of Trustees to consider. The key improvements:




Budget Simulator
Budget accountability and transparency are part of a well-rounded practice of good governance.

The Town created an online simulation tool you can use to add money to your favorite improvements or take away from less-favored improvements. That's right, with this tool, 'Balancing Act,' you may adjust the budget according to your preferences and submit the results directly to the Board of Trustees!

We hope you'll enjoy providing direction on where financial resources should be applied while also noting some of the constraints around budgeting and financial planning for our community.

We want to understand what is important to you as we look to the future. The key to this effort will be an open, transparent dialogue about balancing our priorities with limited resources.

    The walking tours and budget prioritization will be one piece in a large effort to help identify comprehensive, forward-thinking strategies to improve Downtown Erie. We'll research best practices, build upon existing investments, and incorporate stakeholder and community input on allocating Town resources.
