The meeting will feature a presentation by The Crump Theatre consultants Jones & Phillips Associates Inc., time for comments and questions, a table model display of the Crump Theatre, wall posters of five Crump site options that include the pros and cons of each, and a means for each member of the public to express his or her preferred option.
