The second step for you is to give your attendance to council meetings. There may be different names that are assigned to these kind of meetings in various places. The names they go by are the following: planning commission, board of supervisors, city council meeting. There are good reasons for giving your participation to such events. You will get to know more about the town and its present issues by going to these meetings. You can also make your voice and therefore your opinion heard there too.
