LEON COUNTY, Fla. (WTXL) — The Club of Honest Citizens hosted a forum Monday night with the Leon County Government to answer the question, How do we GROW from here?

The discussion was meant to engage on how your neighborhood city and county will look in the next 20 years.

The county says they want to create areas where people can gravitate to where everyone can feel included.

Leon County Commissioner Rick Minor, says ideas for shaping a more diverse community have been highly progressive, and tonight was an opportunity for people to see how.

"This community has a wide, diverse, group of people. All demographics. Different ethnicities, different income levels. What we need to do, as a community, to thrive and be healthy, is make sure we're very inclusive and seeking an input from all those types of people," Rick Minor, Leon County City Commissioner District Three.

Both Leon County and the City of Tallahassee are still undergoing planning for the future, and want your input on things you want to see in the future.
