THE ARGUEMENTS, drama and business dealings of downtown Port Macquarie in the last two decades will be revealed in a new book to be launched with a special presentation next Tuesday and local property owners should not miss it, says a chamber president.
Port Chamber of Commerce President Rob Turner said the official launch of "Port Macquarie downtown: The Colourful History of Port Macquarie's CBD and the Town Centre Master Plan" by Peter Denton, will reveal some interesting facts.
The special event is at Rydges on Tuesday from 6.30pm.
"The book details what's been going on for the last 20 years, the characters the people and the arguments," Mr Turner said.
"It's a bit of a drama."
Council candidates, chamber members and in particular property owners would benefit from the presentation, Mr Turner said.
The major changes to Port Macquarie's central business district are in the book - including Horton, Short, William and Clarence streets.
It may help owners make future decisions, he said.
"Particularly for those who live here - they'll probably know all the people in the book," Mr Turner said.
Author Mr Denton is currently on an extended holiday in Northern Australia and will fly in for the event.
His presentation will also cover how the continued independence if Port Macquarie's Town Centre Master Plan can benefit the future of Port Macquarie.
Tickets cost $15 for Chamber members and $25 for non-members.
