We are now providing YOU with educational meetings that are geared towards current events and/or trends that are going on in the City to help YOU stay updated. For our FIRST community meeting of the year we will be focusing on what MAP has to offer, what MAP has been up to and asking YOU what else we can do better for 2019.
