Broad & Erie Transportation and Community Development Plan

You are invited! The Broad & Erie planning process is nearing an end and we will have an “Open House” where citizens can learn about the final recommendations, talk to the planning staff, view maps, graphics and a Powerpoint, and receive a summary handout. The Open House is scheduled for Thursday evening July 30, 6 to 8pm at the new Temple Medical School — the brand new building on the west side of Broad Street between Tioga and Venango Streets. Please stop by any time you wish, between 6 and 8pm. Beverages and snacks will be provided.

The purpose of the Broad & Erie Transportation and Community Development Plan is to create a blueprint for economic development and neighborhood revitalization according to Transit Oriented Development principles. The study will identify development opportunities near the Broad & Erie transit hub and in the adjacent communities of Tioga, East Tioga and Nicetown. The plan will identify areas for new mixed-use development, commercial revitalization, family housing, senior housing and community facilities. Sidewalks, lighting and transportation infrastructure will be assessed and strategies for improvement will be formulated. The plan will draw from several previous plans pertaining to transportation, community renewal and commercial revitalization. Renewal strategies will seek to build upon a key asset: the public transportation that converges at Broad & Erie.

Study Objectives
The consultant team will provide PCPC with a planning report containing strategies and recommendations regarding:

  • Transit-Oriented Development
  • Transportation Improvements
  • Commercial Revitalization
  • Community Development and Neighborhood Improvement
