The city and county will have a public forum to discuss the expansion of the Monroe Convention Center from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Wednesday at the convention center. The public can give input and ask questions, according to a press release from the city.

Architects from Convergence Design and Schmidt Associates, who will be designing the expansion, will meet with more than 300 stakeholders – including event planners, IU representatives, business leaders and neighborhood associations – over the course of three days this week. Their Wednesday meetings will include the public forum.

In April, the project’s design team will have open house sessions from April 16-18 to allow the public to see the designs in progress and provide feedback.

In addition to the public forum, updates about the expansion process, community engagement and points of contact can be found at the convention center blog.
