ROANOKE, Va. (WDBJ) - The Star City Strong Recovery and Resiliency Advisory Panel met for its fourth meeting Wednesday night, narrowing down Roanoke plans to spend $64.5 million from the American Rescue Plan Act.

So far, 39 members have identified five investment areas.

One citizen suggested building a skate park, saying local youth have been asking for this for years.

Another meeting for the group is planned for next week

After that, their ideas will be presented at a public forum, tentatively planned for August 30, and eventually to the Roanoke City Council.
