Have you heard there is a proposal to drill for oil and natural gas within three miles of the beach here and elsewhere in Florida? Would you like to know more?

The Daily News and Greater Naples Chamber of Commerce on Tuesday will host a town-hall meeting open to the public at the Community Room of the newspaper’s headquarters, 1100 Immokalee Road, in North Naples. Panelists will explain the history, why the state needs the money and why all of this is a good or bad idea.

The 90-minute event starts at 5:30 p.m. Doors will open at 5. Admission is on a first-come basis and limited to 125 guests due to fire-code regulations. Others can watch live on naplesnews.com.
