Public Open House

Community Input Needed for Future Transportation Planning


Erie residents and business owners are invited to an Open House on October 18th to give input and feedback about the future of Erie Parkway and the Town’s overall transportation network.  The meeting will be held at the Erie Community Center from 4:30 – 6:30 p.m.  Information will be available about two specific projects: the Erie Parkway Corridor Study and the Erie Transportation Master Plan. 

Community Input Needed for Future Transportation Planning

Erie Parkway Corridor Study

The Erie Parkway Corridor Study kicked off in March of this year and is scheduled for completion in February 2017.  To date, the project team has inventoried and analyzed existing corridor conditions; identified the need for corridor improvements; solicited input from the public about corridor priorities; and developed two preliminary corridor alternatives for public review.  The alternatives will be available at the Open House on October 18th, providing an opportunity for the community to review the preliminary concepts and offer comments about what you like and dislike. After public input is compiled, the team will refine the alternatives into one preferred corridor alternative, which will be presented to Erie’s Board of Trustees’ for consideration.

Transportation Master Plan

The Town of Erie also recently started the process to update its Transportation Master Plan (TMP). The TMP was last updated in 2008 and it is now time to rethink the community’s transportation network and ensure that it accommodates current and future needs. The Open House on October 18th creates an opportunity for the public to think about the vision for the larger transportation network. Information about Erie’s existing transportation network (roadways, trails, bicycle facilities, and transit) will be available for review.  The public will also be encouraged to identify issues and concerns and to provide input about opportunities for Erie’s transportation network.
