Each meeting will last from 6-8 p.m. There will be a short video about the task force’s work so far. Each of seven committees will have a table so that residents can learn about the recommendations and ask questions. Committee members and city staff members will be stationed at each table.

The Task Force will approve the final recommendations in November and they will be presented to City Council on December 4.
