Please contact Jake Welsh, Planning Commission Secretary, at (814) 870-1273 or jwelsh@erie.pa.us for information regarding the process for submitting items for Planning Commission review.

The City Planning Commission was established in 1962 and consists of a five member body comprised of City residents. Planning Commission members are appointed by the Mayor and approved by City Council. Appointments are for four (4) year terms.

A Planning Commission’s primary activity is planning, which according to the American Planning Association, “is a dynamic discipline that works to improve the welfare of people and their communities by creating more convenient, equitable, healthful, efficient, and attractive places for present and future generations. Planning enables civic leaders, businesses, and citizens to play a meaningful role in creating communities that enrich people’s lives. Good planning helps create communities that offer better choices for where and how people live. Planning helps communities to envision their future. It helps them find the right balance of new development and essential services, environmental protection, and innovative change.”
