February 15th – Open Community Forum –  120 to 140 people attended

This event was hosted by a group that opposed the proposed DRI plan.  There were more attendees on the February 15th event then the previous evening DRI events which were hosted by the City and Stantec.

Unlike the past DRI events, this event on February 15th was hosted by a local group of property owners & business owners.   This event took place because many people in the Oneonta community felt their voices were not being heard.   Between 15 to 20 people from the public spoke out.  The comments on this web site reflect many of the same concerns that were brought up in this meeting.

This forum was highlighted on the front page of The Daily Star on Feb 16th.  It was previously also mentioned on Feb 8th.
