For all those times people wished Abilene had this or did that differently, now is a chance to share that insight and help spark change.
The Community Foundation of Abilene is joining forces with other community stakeholders in a grassroots initiative called ThriveABI to chart a new path for improving the city's quality of life. The first major step is gathering input, advice, concerns and ideas from many people across the city.
The information will be used to establish goals and develop programs that transform those goals into reality, according to a CFA news release.
To foster input, an open community forum is scheduled from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Monday at the Abilene Convention Center, 1100 N. Sixth St.
"Attendees will be seated at tables of nine to have a candid dialogue about what they like about Abilene, what issues are important to them and where they'd like to see Abilene go in the future," the release said.
Also at each table will be a leader to guide the conversation and a scribe to document ideas.

Two more forums will be conducted Dec. 9 and 10 at locations to be determined.
