Our Mission

OWB’s mission is to enhance the quality of life in Erie’s West Bayfront neighborhoods through civic engagement, thoughtful development, historical preservation and neighborhood pride. Our West Bayfront is an inclusive and thriving community where neighbors look out for neighbors, partners work together to preserve and enhance the West Bayfront’s unique assets, and mobilized residents are shaping the future of our neighborhoods and our city.
