"Members of each of those different parts of the project team will be able to answer questions on those specific issues.

"The goal is to provide information to the community so it's a drop-in opportunity for people in the Valley to actually come and find out about what's happening.

"If they want to ask questions or put forward suggestions we'll be able to listen to them and provide feedback."

Those interested can drop-in between 2 and 8pm today at the Moe Football Club. Other sessions are on 22 Nov at the Morwell Bowling Club and 29 Nov at the Traralgon Tennis Association.
