Emerge 2040: A Focused Partnership for the Erie Region’s Future

Over the next 25 years, we will be able to see the Erie County of the future emerge from the Erie County of the present. In recognition of this opportunity, the effort to implement the Destination Erie Regional Plan has been named Emerge 2040: A Focused Partnership for the Erie Region’s Future. Emerge 2040 will extend the collaboration that was built through Destination Erie and will work to inspire and catalyze action throughout the Erie Region toward the shared vision for our future that Destination Erie describes. And Emerge 2040 will keep Erie County’s communities talking with one another to identify opportunities where we can become more efficient and more effective at achieving our shared goals.
