Erie County Land Use Debate

Eighth grade students work in small teams to create a new use for a piece of land in Erie County. As part of the design process, students conduct research and devise a proposal consisting of financial, legal, architectural, and marketing aspects of the project. Students present their proposal to community members who offer feedback and select the best overall use for the property. Community members from companies such as Janotta & Herner and Hoty Enterprises volunteer their expertise to help the students as they progress through the project.
