Outside the Bubble
There is life outside of the Bubble
Look east, and you will find deluxe community ame-
nities, plenty of room to grow, property prices that
could make you blush and thousands of affluent
residents ready to support your business (and
15,000 more are on their way). Here, certainly
triumphs over risk. We believe power is for
business – not the ballot box.
Erie is just the jolt you need.
In fact, Erie is powered for business: Our progressive
civic vision and genuine small town atmosphere
mean we’re about as business friendly as towns get.
Welcome to Erie. Powered for Business.
