County looking for public input to preserve region's heritage

ERIE, Pa. -- Erie County is looking for your thoughts on how to preserve the region's cultural heritage.

Following a recommendation from Emerge 2040, Erie County is working to better protect its cultural and historic assets by creating a cultural heritage plan. The department of planning is seeking public input on how to best preserve Erie County's culture, traditions and historic places by holding public meetings throughout the county.

“Neighborhood revitalization efforts, blight, mitigation, adaptive reuse of industrial facilities, that type of thing, so it touches on economics, touches on quality of life issues, those types of things in addition preserving our historic and cultural assets,” said John McGrainor, of the Department of Planning.

If you would like to share your thoughts about the cultural heritage plan there are two more meetings on Wednesday. One is at 2 p.m. at the Girard Social Hall and 6 p.m. at the Erie Art Museum.
