The community meetings are open to everyone.  OP will present the same information in each of the meetings, so you can attend the one that is most convenient for you.  We will describe the process to date, present the draft proposals, and solicit and listen to community feedback.  We remain open to making additional changes to the draft proposals, based on your comments, before they are taken to the Zoning Commission for consideration at public hearings.   For most of us, zoning is not a normal topic of discussion, but it is an important one, so please plan to attend.
