Watertown lawmakers laid out plans to determine the city's future at a meeting Monday night.
City council members talked about how to increase property values as well as solve problems with vacant lots.
Lawmakers also talked about being more accessible to the community and making sure the community is influencing the city's future.
The idea, council member Ryan Henry-Wilkinson said, is to "let our residents do our market research for us. A great example, if you are ever on a college campus, you'll see that they've put up beautiful pathways and manicured lawns and then there is a line of beaten grass, like at an angle, through the field -- like, that's probably where you should have built the path because that's where all the students are walking."
Council members say they also want to improve the city's public transportation and make it more accessible.
