It was a packed house at Edgerton City Hall on Thursday evening Nov. 1.
Edgerton, Gardner, Kansas Department of Transportation (KDOT), Johnson County and the Mid American Regional Council (MARC) came together regarding upcoming land use plans.
The first session of the Southwest Johnson County Area plan meeting was attended by about 75-100 area residents.
The purpose of the townhall was for  answering question and voicing concerns, said  Kyle Anderson, project manager for Felsburg Holt & Ullevig.
Maps, diagrams and other visual aids were placed around the room.
Attendees were also given a survey to complete and return.
Additional town hall meetings are scheduled for early next year. More information  or comments can be directed to Kimberly Qualls, N.E.
