After a long, harsh winter, The City of Erie could not be more excited about the arrival of summer, warm weather, and sunshine! Mayor Sinnott is very enthusiastic about the summer of 2016’s programs and events! The Summer Parks and Recreation guide is an excellent resource for Erie’s youth, families and residents. “The City of Erie is fortunate enough to have exceptional community partners, that include Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield and the Housing Authority of the City of Erie (HACE), who help to bring a wealth of recreational and event opportunities that greatly contributes to our community,” said Mayor Joseph Sinnott. Our parks, schools, and community centers provide a wide variety of activities that integrate people of all ages. It is our hope this guide will encourage active participation in the multitude of programs offered throughout the city.

The Sisters of Saint Joseph Neighborhood Network along with the City of Erie are excited to announce the implementation phase of the Byrne Grant. The total amount of the grant award is $598,447.
The goal of the Byrne Program is to improve community safety by designing and implementing effective, comprehensive approaches to addressing crime within a targeted neighborhood as part of a broader strategy to advance neighborhood revitalization through cross-sector community-based partnerships.
The Historic Little Italy neighborhood was selected for the grant because they have created an environment for ongoing, positive change. They are a state designated Elm Street, have created the Historic Little Italy Revitalization plan, and look to outside sources and opportunities for funding.
