MidCoast Council is inviting Great Lakes residents to identify the things that matter to them.
From March 28 council will hold a series of workshops to help them understand issues of concern at a local level and gain feedback from the community.
Workshops are expected to take around two hours each session and will be facilitated so everyone has a chance to talk.
Light refreshments will be available at the workshops.
