Major public works projects planned for the south side of downtown and the Magnolia and Denia neighborhoods need more public input.
The city's engineering department has scheduled neighborhood meetings for each of the projects in the coming weeks. All the meetings will be run open-house style from 6 to 8 p.m.
The scheduled meetings are:
