It was the second of five meetings called for by Erie County Executive, Kathy Dahlkemper.
Some members of the public expressed concerns over funding the project. In addition to private funds and state money, one option includes $3.8 million from gaming revenue.
Dahlkemper said, "so, maybe instead of spending the money on asphalt and brick-and-mortars, we spend the money on people's minds--human capital. So, that's one good alternative that would eliminate the need for any further tax revenue from the citizens of Erie County."
There are three more public meetings, each beginning at 7pm. Tonight's meeting will be held at Girard High School. On Wednesday, the meeting will be at General Mclane High School and the last meeting will be Monday, June 26th at the Millcreek Township Municipal Building.
