The partnership has chosen Buffalo, NY and Fort Erie, Ontario-based company Peter J. Smith & Company, Inc. to work on phase one of the update.
The company will assess where downtown Erie has been, where it’s going, conduct background analysis, analyze current plans, and much more to see just how Erie’s downtown can grow.
This first phase is expected to be completed by mid-September, and phase two should begin later this year.
This first phase was funded in-part by the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development and the Erie County Gaming Revenue Authority.
