Academy Neighborhood Association
The Academy Neighborhood Association was formed in 2012 to foster strong community ties, encourage neighborhood safety, support neighborhood assets, and promote economic growth in the historic Academy neighborhood in the city of Erie, Pennsylvania.
Programs and Services
Our organization has held monthly meetings since its inception. During the pandemic, we have held online meetings or outdoor meetings where strict COVID health protocols are observed. Coming out of the pandemic, we are hoping to focus our efforts in five areas. The first is Baker's Field, located at E. 32nd and Holland Streets in Erie. The second is The Tool Lending Library, with its new permanent home on a neighborhood owned lot at 329 E. 28th Street. The third is our ongoing effort to build welcoming gateways in and around our neighborhood. Our fourth focus is on following through with the City of Erie Master Plan for our neighborhood. Finally, as the pandemic eases, we re hoping to once again bring neighbors together safely.
