It’s a standard practice but a necessary one.

Mayor Kevin Anderson said Tuesday was an opportunity for the Community Redevelopment Agency and leaders to hear what the public thinks this redevelopment should look like.

Improvements have already been made to Cleveland Avenue, but with $6 million to spend, they want the public’s input.

Anderson says Cleveland Avenue is a popular road, and as businesses develop and the community grows, they want it to be enjoyable to drive on.

The city tries to update its plan every five years or so to keep up with the community’s demand.

“To see what they think is most viable for that area and what they feel will work, it’s very easy for us to come and say, well, we think this type of,” said Anderson.

Business or that type of business, but by hearing from the public, they can give us insight into what they see the need for in those areas.”

The meeting on Tuesday was at the Holiday Inn on Cleveland Avenue, and it started at at 5:30 p.m.

The city invited business owners, people thinking of developing, and the public to come, listen and voice their opinions.
