The North East Area Comprehensive Plan was introduced to area residents with a meeting Tuesday evening at the North East Township municipal building. Jon McGranor, of the Erie County Department of Planning & Community Development, gave a presentation highlighting the main goals and what was involved in each.
The 3 primary goals of the plan are:
- Improve Our Downtown Area
- Preserve North East Area’s Rural Characteristics
- Improve Our Parks
There is a detailed explanation of each of these goals in the 96 pages of the plan and it’s worth taking some time to see what the planners have in mind.
This is a draft version and feedback from residents may still result in changes before the final plan is adopted, which is a multi-step process involving public hearings and votes by the various governing bodies. If you are interested in the future of our community, download the plan and see what you think.
