About 100 members of the community sat down with officials to show their support for the project at a meeting March 8th.  Cameron says they are updating the vision of the plan and still figuring out a lot of details.  While there is no location chosen yet, many residents favor one of the sites proposed at Jervey Gantt park in Southeast Ocala.
