Parking Study

We are negotiating and expect this week to execute a contract with Kimley Horn to complete a study of parking and traffic patterns in Downtown Erie. The study will identify, among other things, the complete inventory or parking spaces (both public and private), how much, when and for how long they are used. Parking is something we often take for granted, but the supply of parking (or lack of it), where it is located and oriented, how it is singed, how it is managed (short-term, 2-hour, all-day, free, paid) can have a dramatic impact on economic activity, neighborhood livability, and, as this article illustrates, even on historic preservation. That's why we are engaging Kimley Horn to help us develop a detailed inventory of existing parking,and a customized strategy to make the best use of the parking that is already there, how much additional parking may be needed, and how we might satisfy that demand.

Erie Police Department


April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month.  Erie PD is a partner agency for Blue Sky Bridge’s Project Pinwheel working to prevent and reduce child sexual assault.  In an effort to raise awareness for this cause, we have planted our pinwheel garden outside of the Police Department.
Also, on April 3rd, Malcolm attended our Watch III/Watch I briefing at 0630 and discussed current affairs and hiring.

Public Works

Public Works

Public Works and Town Administration submitted a letter of support to gain federal funding for signal and street improvements at 119th Street and State Highway 7. The Town would contribute roughly $3M which would be generated by nearby development.
For drinking water regulatory purposes the Town recognizes the current population as 27,189. This was determined in conjunction with Planning and Community Development.
Malcolm Fleming attended the bi-monthly Public Works Communication Meeting. The staff member to have asked the best question will be granted lunch with Malcolm. Congratulations Chris Holland who inquired about development in Historic Old Town.
