Our Mission

The Erie Redevelopment Authority's mission is to Renew, Rebuild, and Revitalize the City of Erie, Pennsylvania.  Since the 1970s, The Redevelopment Authority has been involved, and will continue to be a part of initiatives and programs designed to improve downtown Erie, neighborhood business districts, and residential neighborhoods.


The Latest Updates:


Due to the COVID-19 Crisis, the Redevelopment Authority's offices are CLOSED to the public until further notice.  However, the Authority's programs are continuing to operate and Authority staff members are regularly available by telephone or email.    Please see the Staff page under the About Us tab for current contact information.   This is a challenging time for us all and we ask for your patience and understanding.
