About 75 people got together Thursday night to talk about the next 10 years of Downtown Sioux Falls.
Topics ranged from public parking to arts and entertainment to health.
Planning the future of a growing city takes a lot of thought.
"We already have more than 100 people involved in the process with our citizen advisory board, our citizen work groups public meetings and events like tonight and we've already received over 500 responses from our online survey." said Darrin Smith, Director of Community Development Sioux Falls.
That's why the City of Sioux Falls held a public forum.
Now they will take the ideas of the people and put them into the city's plans.
And the people we spoke with say they love it.
"It gives you a voice and that's what imp and we're lucky that we have a town that's small enough that can still do that and still feel like you're shaping the future of Downtown Sioux Falls." said Cindy Palleschi who was at the meeting.
If you didn't make it to this first meeting - don't worry.
There will be more meetings where your voice can be heard.
The city hasn't set an exact date, but it will be sometime in March.
