TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - Providing an opportunity for people to learn what's going on in their community was the purpose behind a series of meetings hosted by Terre Haute Mayor Duke Bennett.
They're called Neighborhood Summits.
Wednesday night's gathering was for people in the city's north-east side.
It was held at North Vigo High School.
Mayor Bennett talks with those attending about what the city is working on in their area and then answers questions.
"We get a lot of discussion about what's going on in that particular neighborhood, it may just be down the street," said Mayor Bennett, "it could be train related, crime related. I mean, there's a lot of things that vary from area to area."
This was the first of eight summits.
