Planning and the Planning Department

The role of the newly created Planning Department and Planning Director for the City of Erie has been evolving since the City’s first Director was appointed in January, 2018.  The focus of this department is to coordinate the efforts of the City to achieve its goals and implement the City’s Comprehensive Plan, Erie Refocused, and its 5 Year Action Plan.  Ensuring that the community’s vision for the future is understood, memorialized and then acted upon is paramount to the mission of planning and will help drive progressive change in Erie.  This endeavor will take the collective effort of the City and its community partners to realize so coordination at this moment is key.

The Department works with all other City departments to align resources to meet community needs as well as help identify areas where additional research, policy development, or planning is needed and fill those areas of need.  The Planning Department and Director works with the Planning Commission in order to provide the citizen planner’s voice to meet the challenges and opportunities for the City as well as with a multitude of neighborhood groups, businesses, residents, and other agencies within the City and the region.
