Comprehensive Plan Updates



In accordance with Initiatives for a Smart Economy 2.0, Erie County’s Department of Environment and Plan­ning (“DEP”) is assisting municipalities with compre­hensive plan updates that are consistent with One Re­gion Forward principles. The updates are funded by federal Community Development Block Grant (“CDBG”) dollars and will assist thirteen local governments with updates to their comprehensive plans.

Comprehensive plans provide a framework for creating livable, healthy communities as well as resilient economies, social equity, and strong regional ties. Each compre­hensive plan will contain recommendations and imple­mentation plans for the development, preservation, and enhancement of residential, commercial, and industrial neighborhoods as well as public facilities and infra­structure.
