Erie County released its latest convention center study today. The finding proposed a new Convention Center to be located next to the Statler building. Statler City applauds the county’s recognition of the important economic benefit of being in the convention business. The county showed a deep understanding of the Convention Center’s economic impact, especially in considering the interests of all the small businesses, including restaurants, bars, and hotels, that have organically grown around the current Convention Center. The exact continuing relationship between the Statler building and any new or expanded Convention Center is yet to be determined. Statler City is excited about the possibilities a new or expanded Convention Center could bring, whether based on the plans presented by Mark Croce or on the alternative plan presented by the county.

Statler City looks forward to hearing the public comments on the proposal.
