Town Staff
I feel very lucky to be surrounded and supported by a team of talented, hard-working, creative and professional staff. They aim to provide the best of services to Erie every day. On an ongoing basis, I'm going to highlight their good work and contributions. Here are a handful of photos of some members of this great team. Great things are happening in Erie!

Roadwork will occur on Colliers Blvd. between Erie Pkwy. and Mount Pleasant Cemetery and Colliers Blvd. roundabout east on Colliers Pkwy. to Orion Ave. as part of the Daybreak Metro District improvements final acceptance.

officer swearing in

Officers Stewart Hartman and Conner Willyard successfully completed the Field Training Officer Program and have begun their assignments.
Erie Commons Metro District

Economic Development

On September 10, the Board of Trustees voted to pass an amendment to the Erie Commons Planned Development, rezoned a portion of Erie Commons Commercial, modified the existing metro district, and created a commercial metro district that will split the current metro district into commercial and residential. This will help lower the outstanding bond debt and support the Erie Commons Business Park. The Board's actions to rezone 14 of the 21 acres at the southwest corner of Briggs St. & Erie Pkwy. will allow medium-density housing units and keep seven acres dedicated to commercial use. 

Mapping Mount Pleasant Cemetery

Mapping Mount Pleasant Cemetery

Next week you might see some curious activity on the grounds of Mount Pleasant Cemetery: ground-penetrating radar. The 'mower-like' device is used to scan, map & record information about the earth’s subsurface. This non-invasive and non-destructive mapping method will provide the Town with burial sites, or other artifact data to help guide decision-making for the future of this historical site.

In August, the Board approved the resolution to commit to the services, recognizing that Mount Pleasant Cemetery is one of the oldest operational prairie cemeteries in the State. This mapping is an essential first step to develop a cemetery master plan. The Town Clerk, Jessica Koenig, says she is "proud of these efforts to be good stewards of our history" and also noted this is a crucial step to care for, and plan for, the cemetery's historical, and significant presence in Town.

Mapping work begins Monday, September 16 during the day (9 a.m. – 4 p.m.) Monday-Friday, weather permitting, with completion on September 20.

For more information on this project, please contact the Town Clerk at 303-926-2730.
