"Whether you are a resident, or a small business owner, or a big business owner, or you travel, we want to know what you think your needs are going to be and what you'd like to see in your community, your neighborhood, and your broader area of the state."
Each meeting will run from five p.m. to seven p.m. with formal presentations afterwards.
