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

Over the next 25 years, Erie County will emerge as a region where businesses, neighborhoods and families thrive, education and the environment are valued, and communities are connected. Our vision is to build a stronger, more prosperous and more resilient Erie County region. Upon finalization of this vision in March 2015, the Destination Erie Regional Plan began implementation under the name “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 brighter tomorrow.
