This WikiProject aims to coordinate improvement efforts on articles related to Erie, Pennsylvania, and the surrounding area including Northwestern Pennsylvania.

It is also an aim of this project to bring the Erie city article up to Featured Article status, in part by bringing it up to the standards defined by WikiProject Cities.

This is an open project that is owned and controlled by all its members. Its open tasks are a compilation generated by many of its members. All concerns with elements of this project should be discussed on the Talk page.


March 25, 2007: WikiProject Erie begins - After noticing WikiProjects for Pittsburgh and Youngstown, I decided that Erie needed one. As you may notice, this page is pretty much a knock-off of those two (Ytown and Pgh). The Pgh project page is awesome. If you've got some time, please check it out. And take notice to the Talk page, too. It's how I'd like to see Erie's WikiProject page be used. --Write_On_1983 talk | contribs 05:08, 26 March 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]
May 25, 2007: WikiProject Erie is two months old with four members. Erie, PA is well on the way to becoming a Good Article. I'd like to start tagging Crawford County, PA and Warren County, PA articles for the project. --T. Wiki
