Town Administrator's Weekly Update

Erie's Four Corners
On August 13, the Board of Trustees approved a contract with DPZ CoDesign to develop a master plan for Erie’s Four Corners (the intersection of Erie Parkway and County Line Road).  Town staff have been working with property owners, representatives from adjacent neighborhoods, developers, the Urban Land Institute Technical Advisory Panel (ULI TAP) and others to determine how best to create a thriving area with a unique sense of place, including the right mix of retail, office, residential, civic, park and open space uses that will thrive in Erie’s market.

This work will address several of the Board’s 2019 Work Plan priorities, including the UDC Update, Economic Development, Place Making and Community Engagement.  DPZ CoDesign is an internationally recognized firm with decades of experience. They apply their expertise through a time and cost efficient “Collaborative Community Design” process that engages all interested parties to produce designs that reflect the community’s vision, and the associated regulatory documents to facilitate that vision. Stay tuned for more details on how you can participate. And for inspiration, here’s a picture I took of the site last week…

Hemp Industry Profile

Economic Development

Last week, on August 6, in efforts to better understand the emerging hemp industry nationwide and its activities in Erie, the Town hosted a Hemp Education Day for Staff.

Two local hemp extractor businesses spoke on subjects pertaining to the industry, safety regulations and legislation, extraction processes and the differences between hemp and marijuana. Although this is a fairly new industry to Erie, the Town and its partners are taking a proactive, collaborative stance to learn more about the emerging trends and ensure we are proceeding in a safe manner.
