Mission Main Street and Grants Mean More Good Things In Union City

From Staff Reports

The Erie County Gaming Revenue Authority announced yesterday that more than $770,000 in Mission Main Street grants, will be given to communities for revitalization. They include Union City and Corry.

Founded in 2007, Preservation Erie’s mission is to promote, preserve and enhance the distinctive character of greater Erie through community-based planning, design and historic preservation.

Preservation Erie is currently working with Union City, where Mission Main Street efforts are in their infancy.

Mission Main Street grants also were awarded to Impact Corry ($202,400), and Waterford Borough ($249,800).

Union City Pride, another positive energy group, recently purchased the old Union City Dinor, and the church building next store, with usage plans in the future. They also have plans for a parking lot, located in the empty lot across South Main Street, from the Union City Public Library.
