ERIE IS UNDERGOING MASSIVE TRANSFORMATIONAL CHANGE.

Visionary business, philanthropic and community leaders formed the EDDC in 2017, to transform the city of Erie’s downtown core and spark revitalization across the region.

A city ready for change.

Despite its past challenges, the City of Erie is uniquely positioned to capitalize on its strengths:

  • Erie is home to Presque Isle State Park, the 4th most visited public park in the United States,
  • Erie boasts 470 acres of bay front property, with 176 acres that is “shovel-ready” for development,
  • Erie is centrally located, within a 2-hour drive of Cleveland, Buffalo and Pittsburgh,
  • Erie is Pennsylvania’s only city situated on the Great Lakes,
  • Erie is home to four universities, including the nation’s largest medical school, currently serving more than 23,000 students, and
  • Erie is proud of its diversity with African Americans making up 16% of the population, and New Americans, Immigrants and Refugees comprising 20% of Erie residents.
