Destination Erie Phase Three Public Workshops

When you get an opportunity to make a difference in your community, you should embrace the chance to help shape the area you call home for the better – and now’s your chance, as Destination Erie will be holding a series of public workshops for the third phase of their plan to better Erie County.

“We’ve laid out a vision for the future, but these workshops are how we’ll talk about how we’re going to get there,” says Destination Erie Project Manager Anna Frantz says. “These workshops are the best opportunity for the public to participate in that conversation.”

Since the members of Destination Erie are keen on getting the opinions of Erieites to help shape the future of this county, workshops will be held from June 9 to 12 in the Girard, North East, McKean, Millcreek, Erie, and Corry areas to provide multiple opportunities for people to have their voices heard in a conversation that could have a serious impact on the future of this region.

“We’re going to be talking about the types of projects we would like to see come out of this long-term regional plan, so in terms of why it’s so important for people to come, this is the most exciting time in this public planning process, because this is when we start to talk about concrete ideas,” Frantz says.

The times are a changin’, and you can have a say in exactly what changes are made to Erie County by attending the Phase Three Public Workshops. Destination Erie is giving you an opportunity to impact the future of this community, but now it’s on you to take the reins on Erie’s future.
