According to LOREDC, the first series of stakeholder group meetings will be held on Tuesday, March 8th at Osage Beach City Hall. Additionally, community meetings will be held in the coming month. Official notices with dates, times and locations will be provided by LOREDC at least two weeks ahead of these meetings.
