Public comment accepted on Downtown Streetscape Master Plan

The City of Erie invites the public to comment on the Downtown Streetscape Master Plan, which includes multiple phases of upgrades from Second to Twelfth streets.

Watch video of the March 29 public meeting at Comment on the proposals using this online form. Comments will be taken until April 12.

The first phase of the project will cover areas from South Park Row to Twelfth Street. It is expected to be completed by early 2024. The project proposes:

  • New concrete curbs
  • Decorative LED lighting with new light poles
  • Soil cells, which are used for sediment control and better future tree health
  • Expanded green space, which will be strips of grass along the curb

Future phases may include:

  • ADA-compliant curb ramps
  • New sidewalks
  • Lead walks, which will connect the roadway to the sidewalks through the new green spaces
