I saw this thread about a possible existing North Carolina neighborhood called "Little Erie". I think establishing such a city or town is a great idea, especially down south because that's where I figure most Erieites are relocating too. Why can't people relocate while still having it feel in some ways like "Big Erie"? And why must it be just a single neighborhood?

It seems like it would be easier to just move back to Erie.

While the Erie population is declining and many people have left the area, a good number of the people who have left the city live in Millcreek Township or surrounding areas. Erie seems to be losing many young adults and recent college graduates, but many of the older people seem to have stayed in the area and this is evident by the declining city population and the stagnant county population. In other words, I would say that Millcreek Township is already little Erie and who knows maybe it will be larger than Erie someday.

Trackster, while I do agree with that, I still think "Why not try it somewhere else in another state?"

And Millcreek becoming the same size as Erie, never gonna happen in my lifetime. If that does happen though, they might as well merge or move the county seat to Millcreek.

I agree that it is highly unlikely that Millcreek Township will surpass Erie in population anytime soon, but as Millcreek moves closer to 60,000 in population and Erie moves closer to 90,000 it will be interesting to see what happens. Millcreek has a huge amount of land and currently has a larger population than Harrisburg. I am not sure where the concentration of Erie residents who have left the state or area is, but many people I have talked to recently have mentioned that their kids have moved to Pittsburgh for work.
