In 2014, Lisa Austin and Stephen Sonnenberg penned an article for the Erie Reader's blog titled "Considering the City." In this article, Austin and Sonnenberg explored four steps that could be taken to improve the visual landscape in Erie, improve the lives of residents, and make a better impression on visitors.

Replace dead trees
Stop front yard and sidewalk parking
Get rid of illegal signs
