The series of Our Town meetings continued on Thursday night, giving people who live in downtown Charlottesville a chance to talk to members of local government.
The forum focused on the Martha Jefferson and Little High neighborhoods.
The event is one in a series that allows neighborhood residents to ask questions or tell issues to City Council and staff.
Issues included increasing affordable housing, skilled labor jobs, litter control, and traffic.
"We're really glad that the city is having these meetings and allowing us to give our input," said Kelly Ceppa, a resident of the Martha Jefferson neighborhood. "The issues that concern the neighbors the most is intersections. Really coming around a slight corner and kids can be there and be unseen. We have had three children hit."
A solution discussed at the meeting was to have police monitor stop sign violations at problem intersections.
