“Their visions, their desires, what they like about the community, what they don’t like about the community, where they want to see Macon be in the future,” P&Z Executive Director Jeff Ruggieri said. “It’s pretty simple. Just asking people about the quality of life, how they can see it improve. We’ll take that and turn that into actionable items and implement them over time.”
