Lake County residents can share their thoughts on topics including transportation, economic development, sustainability and public safety in a series of countywide forums.
The Lake County Board is holding five community forums where residents can help shape policy and budget decisions, and influence where the county will focus its resources.
The County Board will consider the input as it develops a long-term strategic plan.
