In May and June, the Working Group will meet to discuss the initial draft findings of the Existing Conditions Report and learn more about the land use scenario methodology that will be used in the planning process. The Community Forum will meet in July to discuss the report and methodology to help prepare for broader discussion with more stakeholders in the fall.
