Perry Square Alliance gets $100,000 grant for improvements to the area

Local News

Perry Square Alliance has been making transformational improvements in the park for several years.  It’s now expanding its influence to what is called ‘The Perry Square District’ of downtown Erie, and it has big plans for the future.

Food Truck Row is one of many regular activities that will benefit from the Community Foundation’s grant of $100,000 to the alliance.  Perry Square Alliance President, Jeff Brinling, tells us, “we are working with the city…  food truck vendors, and the public to create more places to sit.  I have purchased food from the food trucks, some of it is easier to eat standing than others, so I know I would appreciate a place to sit to enjoy the park”.

In addition to infrastructure improvements in the park, the Perry Square Alliance expects to dramatically enhance the holiday experience in Perry Square come this Christmas.
