Attendees are welcome to ask questions, discuss neighborhood issues, and pick up information about upcoming community events. Coffee will be provided by Silverstone’s Moxie Java.

This format helps people get their questions answered quickly and allows common interests to be discussed.” She adds, “It’s also an excellent way for us to gather candid feedback about how people feel things are going in our city; what amenities they particularly enjoy, areas they feel could use improvement, or what they’d like to see in the future.”
