John Nolen Project


The John Nolen Project examined the 1913 Nolen plan for Greater Erie during the centennial anniversary of its publication and met with over two dozen visitors and residents during the weekly office hours.  In addition, CIVITAS presented a summary of the Nolen plan to seven community groups during 2013 including the Green Building Alliance at the Ridge Center, Senior Lunch at the JFK Center and the Lawrence Park Historical Society.  The Nolen Project was also presented at the May 2013 Open Engagement Conference held at Portland State University in Portland, OE.
