Town Administrator's Weekly Update

Town Administrator               May 22, 2019

DOWNTOWN PARKING & CIRCULATION PLAN Stakeholder Meetings. Please come share your perspective on Downtown Parking and traffic issues today during the stakeholder meetings for this project. New private buildings are being built in Downtown Erie. There are also frequent public events in Downtown (it’s a happening place!). The Town wants to make sure there is the right amount of parking and that we plan all transportation improvements—including the Moffat Street Bridge—and mobility options for getting to, around, and from Downtown Erie in a way that is safe, convenient, and compatible with the character of Downtown. For more information on the study results so far, please view the Downtown Parking Traffic Study webpage.
So come to the Town Hall Community Room and share your perspective. We hope Downtown Business Owners will join us from 3:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. (before the Farmers’ Market starts) and others join us from 4:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.. I look forward to seeing you there!

Police Department


Members of the EPD very much appreciated the Police Proclamation provided by Trustee von Woudenberg at the Board of Trustee meeting. 

On Thursday afternoon, some of Erie’s finest went to Black Rock and then on to Erie Elementary to congratulate the 2nd and 3rd place winners of the Respect for Law Enforcement Drawing/Coloring Contest offered by the Optimist Club.  On Friday morning, more of Erie’s finest returned to Erie Elementary to congratulate a kindergarten student who happened to be the 1st place winner of the contest.  The winner’s poster depicted a puppy dog on a leash since it’s the law.  McGruff wanted to meet this exceptional young man; McGruff refused to be placed on a leash… 

Erie Police Officers enjoyed the 2nd Hero’s Breakfast provided by the United Methodist Church for Wounded Warriors and local law enforcement on Saturday morning. 

Following the above mentioned breakfast, Command Staff, several officers and Erie Police Department volunteers worked the Town Fair event on Saturday, May 18.  McGruff decided to show up (again without a leash) and walk through the crowd. Send your McGruff sightings our way!
