Residents will have a chance to learn more about a new park northwest of Branson at a Q&A this week.

The public is invited to a meeting this Thursday evening at 5:30, at the Dewey Short Visitor Center next to Table Rock Dam in Branson, where officials will get community feedback on the future use of the 1,011-acre Ozark Mountain State Park, along the Ozark Mountain Highroad, according to a press release.
