Members of the audience were allowed to ask questions.  Many of which were tough, passionate and respectful. Questions included increasing number of affordable housing units, increasing access for seniors, actually using input from community engagement sessions, as well as equity issues and quality of the westside trails as compared to the east side trails.

The panel facilitator was excellent!! He also asked tough questions of the panel that included City Department heads and Odetta from the Transformation Alliance, a local non profit.
