I’ll bring copies of our most recent State of the Downtown report and board meeting notes to help stimulate conversation, but there’s no formal agenda; I'm open to answering questions and discussing anything pertaining to DDA work.

We'll play out exact location by ear based on the busyness of the library, but I'll aim for us to be by the fireplace. Hope to see you there!
