    The City of Lynchburg wants to hear from you, and to make it easier, a brand new online tool, “Lynchburg is Listening,” is being launched.  “Lynchburg is Listening” gives residents the opportunity to be heard through online discussions on projects, informal surveys, and posting of ideas through an easy-to-use interface.  This new application will also help facilitate ideas among members of the community.
