Joseph E. Sinnott, Mayor

Welcome to the City of Erie, Pennsylvania. I invite you to come and experience all that Erie has to offer. Whether you are traveling for business or pleasure, looking to relocate an existing company or starting a new business, I am sure you will find much to love about Erie.

As one of Pennsylvania's largest cities and the Commonwealth's only Great Lakes Port, we offer the opportunity for your business to grow and expand in our City. A skilled workforce, generous tax incentives and great location make Erie the best choice for companies interested in growth opportunities. Erie is strategically located within 500miles of half the nation's population. Whether it is by rail, road, air or water our location allows you to connect easily to your customers and suppliers.

Manufacturing is alive and well here. Twenty-two percent of all jobs are still in the manufacturing sector, double the national rate. The five colleges and universities located in the region help provide a talented pool of future employees to just about every business sector. The Erie Technology Incubator in the heart of downtown provides opportunities for tech companies to really thrive. I invite you to come have a look for yourself and see what really sets Erie apart.

Affordable housing, short commutes and miles of beautiful beaches make Erie a great place to live and raise a family. Our AA baseball team. the Erie Seawolves and our Ontario Hockey League Team, the Otters both call downtown home. I hope you'll catch a game next time you visit. If you prefer, come and tour one of our many museums or enjoy the symphony or ballet at the historic Warner Theater. If you like the outdoors, enjoy a day of charter fishing on Lake Erie, a bicycle ride along miles of waterfront or perhaps a day relaxing on one of our many sandy beaches. However you choose to spend your time with us, I know you're going to love Erie and all that it has to offer.
