Community Tour #2: Forest Park

We had an incredibly substantive discussion last night in Forest Park, for our second "community tour" meeting of the year.

The Mayor (Chuck Johnson), City Manager, Vice Mayors and Councilmembers put a lot of time into a presentation that highlighted their priorities of economic development, infrastructure, blighted and foreclosed properties, and public safety.

Needless to say, any regular reader of this blog knows that those priorities align directly with the County's priorities. While we don't have the resources to address these issues as much as we'd like, we look forward to working with Forest Park leaders and other communities to take on these very challenges, and we will follow up on many of their concrete suggestions.

Thanks to Forest Park leaders and citizens for making last night's meeting such a successful and productive session.
