A proposal to urge Erie Community College to establish medical and dental training programs at the former Sheehan Health Network property on Michigan Avenue will be discussed by the Common Council’s Community Development Committee at 1 p.m. Tuesday in Council Chambers.

Ellicott Council Member Darius G. Pridgen is sponsoring the measure, which he said will make relevant job training accessible for people who live near the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus.

A spokesman for ECC President Jack F. Quinn Jr. said the proposal would be brought to the college’s board of trustees. It’s not clear if this is a move ECC is interested to make.
