"We have the unique opportunity to reimagine the heart of Beaumont and want it to be a citywide effort with everyone's input and buy-in. The more feedback we get, the better," said Assistant City Manager of Development Services Chris Boone. "We want downtown to be a thriving place where all citizens, visitors, and students can eat, live, work and play."
The meeting will be led by the City's contracted consulting firm, SWA.
