A community input specialist with Verner Johnson will be in town through Wednesday soliciting opinions and ideas from citizens on Goldsboro's proposed Air Force museum.

Kathleen Tinworth was at the Goldsboro Family YMCA this morning and is scheduled to be at various other venues across the city this week, including appearances at Senior Day at Herman Park on Tuesday and at the park's Farmers Market Wednesday.

Goldsboro Travel and Tourism Director Betsy Rosemann said this morning that Ms. Tinworth will be seeking to get "intersect" interviews with residents who just happen to be out. These informal, cold interviews will be balanced out by meetings with civic groups, including the Civil Air Patrol, the Wayne County Veterans Coalition, the Goldsboro Youth Council, Wayne School of Engineering and perhaps a Kiwanis group.

That, Mrs. Rosemannsaid, is why the meetings have not been publicized.

She is also seeking to schedule her for appearances at Berkeley Mall and Sam's Club, she said.

Mrs. Rosemann said Ms. Tinworth will return to hold public input forums in the future as the second half of her public survey initiative. The first phase of the public input portion of the consultant work included a stakeholders meeting with 17 citizens including Mayor Al King and Mayor Pro Tempore Chuck Allen.
