Our West Bayfront
Our West Bayfront's mission is to enhance the quality of life in Erie's West Bayfront neighborhoods by promoting civic engagement, thoughtful development, historical preservation, and neighborhood pride.
Programs and Services
OWB works with residents, local businesses, and community partners to improve the condition of properties and to activate and enhance parks and public spaces. We provide matching funds to property owners in targeted areas to make repairs to their homes, we acquire and redevelop residential and mixed-use properties, and we work with the City of Erie to implement park improvement projects such as at Bayview Park. We also support a network of neighborhood groups, houses of worship, schools and others that together host a variety of free events for residents throughout the year. This year's Erie Gives contributions will be reserved to support community art projects.
