On Tuesday the Board of Trustees approved a proposed intergovernmental agreement (IGA) with Lafayette and with the Town of Erie Urban Renewal Authority (TOEURA) regarding litigation over the Nine Mile property, administrative proceedings concerning highway access permits on State Highways 287 and 7, and other issues. However, and also on Tuesday, the TOEURA, which is also a party to the litigation and to the IGA, asked for additional information before acting on the proposal. The proposed IGA would provide a resolution of the legal proceedings and access permit issues in an amicable way while encouraging well-ordered future development of Erie and Lafayette. Staff expects Lafayette to consider the IGA on February 5th, and for the TOEURA to consider the matter after that. If either Lafayette or the TOEURA adopt an IGA different from the one approved by the Board of Trustees, the matter will come back to the Board for further consideration.
