ASHLAND, Ore. -- Monday more than 50 people came with a list of goals they have for the city of Ashland.

One of those people was Kelly Marcotulli. She lives in Ashland and she says, "I'm here because I am very passionate about my health, my children's health and my future grandchildren's health."

Residents like Kelly have been thinking about this for awhile.

"I've learned a great deal. Researched for the past 8 months about 5G," said Marcotulli.

If you are wondering what a city council member can do to change 5G or internet, I was too.

"What they can do is re-write the ordinance," Marcotulli said.

But it wasn't just the topic of health. It was environmental conservation, education — and from the people I spoke to, the biggest topic of the night . . . transportation.

Julia Sommer, who also lives in Ashland, says, "My number one goal is to have public transportation in Ashland."

The general complaint is that Ashland doesn't have enough parking and getting to Ashland isn't easy.

"We need a town shuttle, that runs frequently and more than one route," Sommer said.

So the city council members spent two hours writing down all these goals.

"It's great. I wasn't quiet sure how the format would lend itself, but I came prepared with a written goal for our city," said Marcotulli.

The city council members will refer to these goals in upcoming meetings. They aim to find common goals and see what they can do to acheive them.
