The city of Algoma is looking to the future when it hosts its second comprehensive planning meeting Wednesday evening. After hosting a brief public hearing at the outset, the meeting will break out into individual workshops where residents and other stakeholders can lay out what they would like to see the needs of the community, economic development, and housing. After their first meeting held in April, city administrator Jeff Wiswell says officials were able to learn a lot heading into Wednesday’s workshops.
The city is holding the series of meetings after recently receiving money from the federal Community Development Block Grant program. Wednesday’s meeting will begin at 6 p.m. inside the Algoma High School cafeteria and commons.
