(ABC 6 News) -- People in Austin came together today to voice their concerns about housing in the city.

It was part of Austin's Vision 2020 Plan to give people a chance to weigh in. Residents came to talk about their experience as renters with landlords, community leaders and employers.

Organizers say their goal was to provide a safe environment for community members to voice their opinions.

Laura Helle of Vision 2020 heard some of the concerns that residents brought up, "We've heard about some problem areas and also some great things that are happening so we just want to give people a time and a place that is comfortable and early for them to share their experiences."

Vision 2020 plans to take information from today's meeting and share it with elected officials in Austin.
