March 21, 2014 - Leaders from the state, county, and local levels met with members of DevelopErie to answer questions about the group's proposed $60 million rail terminal project which would be built in Harborcreek.

A common question: why has Harborcreek been selected and not another site?

Officials from DevelopErie said Harborcreek is the only location that met all of the necessary criteria to build this terminal.

DevelopErie officials also said there are studies being conducted to assess how this project will affect the traffic, congestion, etc., but township officials still have their concerns.

The public is invited to a meeting on Thursday, April 3rd, at 4pm at Iroquois HS.
