Well, yesterday the group from the think tank, along with the City of Bangor engineers met for a lunch meeting with the public invited to attend and share their thoughts.

The program is called Building the Future. And if you didn’t get to attend the meeting, there is a survey that has been on their Facebook page you can register your opinion.

They also promise more events to come.
