"There is no meeting. If you look around, you will see there is no meeting. We came here and we were told it was a meeting. We came here to hear from our commissioners and to hear what's going on," says, Greg Kinlaw.

Residents who live along Bannerman Road say they expected a traditional meeting and to hear the development plan from officials then ask questions but what they got was an open house filled with boards, which left them confused.

"I'm getting conflicting information. "I've lived on Bannerman Road for over 40 years and I'm told tonight that where I live is going to be one of the first areas affected, so of course I'm concerned I want to know what's gong on," says Becky Dickey.

Leon County leaders are looking for ways to improve Bannerman Road between Meridian Road and Thomasville Road which stretches close to five miles.

"This will impact my property value and the noise level at my house and I'm concerned about that," says, Kinlaw

"We haven't come up with any solutions yet we're trying to get that input from the public," says Andrew Roark lead consultant for Leon County.

"The next time we have a public meeting this room will be full of boards to talk about these subjects we are concerned about. We'll talk about the drainage, and will be evaluating all the elements that go into a expanding a road," says Joe Brown, Director of Engineering for Leon County.
