Memphis mayoral candidates will be grilled on their plans for turning Memphis into a greener, more sustainable community at a candidate forum on Thursday.
Greening Greater Memphis, a nonprofit dedicated to making Memphis green, will host the forum at 6 p.m. at the University of Memphis' Panhellenic Building, 384 Patterson Street.
The candidates will be asked questions related to quality of life, health and the environment, including the preservation of the city's rivers, parks, greenlines, air quality and outdoor activities.
All of the mayoral candidates were invited to participate in the forum, which will last about 90 minutes.
The event is free and open to the public.
UPDATE: Confirmed for the event are attorney Charles Carpenter, former City Councilwoman Carol Chumney, Mayor Pro Tem Myron Lowery and Memphis City School board member Kenneth Whalum.
