Erie County Council approves resolution in Pleasant Ridge Manor East debate


Lingering questions about the future of Pleasant Ridge Manor East prompted a vote by Erie County Council last night.

It is the latest round in the fight over whether to renovate or demolish the former senior care facility.

During Tuesday night’s meeting, council approved a resolution to retain Bostwick Design Partnership.

That company would study the building space owned by the county and whether Pleasant Ridge East fills a future need.

However, the money to pay Bostwick needs to be certified by County Executive Kathy Dahlkemper, who is in favor of demolition.
