ATTEND COMMUNITY MEETINGS
A number of community meetings will be scheduled at key steps in the process as a means for broad public comment. The meetings will range from “roll-up-the-sleeves” workshops to smaller meetings, including “kitchen table conversations,” with members of the project team and the public. Locations will vary and meetings will be announced in the newspaper as well as on this website.
