Through the Department of Community and Economic Development and the Governor’s Action Team, almost 600 jobs have been created or retained in Erie. Businesses including Sterling Technologies, VNET, UPMC and Logistics Plus, which the governor visited earlier today, have committed to the region with their recent investmentsTo further spur job creation and development, the commonwealth has invested $5 million in the Harbor Place project to remake Erie’s Bayfront, provided over $1.5 million in Neighborhood Assistance Program tax credits to encourage businesses to invest in distressed areas, and a Keystone Enterprise Zone was created in the city to encourage innovation, attract businesses, and create jobs.center_img August 09, 2017last_img read more
