Mayoral Candidate, John Persinger, announcing his 'Recreate Erie Initiative' this morning. The initiative seeks to develop three new, unique facilities in the city. This includes a marketplace, an athletic complex, and a craft business accelerator.
These three initiatives will make use of vacant buildings across Erie County. "We want to make sure that these buildings are put to use, we want them to create jobs and business, we want to create communal spaces for individuals in our neighborhoods, we want to create opportunities for our children, and we want to get rid of these symbols of urban decay."
Persinger plans to partner with the private sector to fund the initiative.
