Council projects from the heart of Port Macquarie to Kendall and the Pembrooke area are among $67.4 million in capital works planned during the 2019-20 financial year.
The community has until April 18 to have its say on Port Macquarie-Hastings Council's proposed actions, activities, projects, budget and performance measures for the 2019-20 financial year.
The draft Operational Plan is part of the council's integrated suite of planning documents on exhibition.
More than $2 million is earmarked for road resealing across the local government area, $1 million is planned to build footpaths, $650,000 is allocated to the Stormwater Renewal Program and $18 million is allotted to finalise the Small Village Sewerage Scheme at Long Flat, Comboyne, and Telegraph Point.
Other projects include Stuart Park regional sporting precinct ($2.5 million), Port Macquarie Airport terminal upgrade construction finalisation ($2.375 million) and The Ruins Way reconstruction from Major Innes Road to Sitella Street ($950,000).
Projects planned in the Wauchope area range from the Pembrooke Road-Stoney Creek Road Bridge upgrade ($500,000) to Rocks Ferry Reserve playground upgrade ($102,500) and Hastings Regional Sporting Complex construction ($2 million).
In the Camden Haven, the planned works include the Lake Cathie skate park construction ($312,000), Kendall Sports Ground sports facility upgrade ($155,000) and construction continuation of the Kew Sewerage Treatment Plant Upgrade ($5 million).
Mayor Peta Pinson urged everyone to have a look at the draft Operational Plan and have a say.
She said roads were the big winner, as you would expect, with a $26.8 million earmarked for roads and transport, which was more than last year.
Cr Peter Alley encouraged submissions from the public after which the matter would come back to the council for consideration.
Deputy mayor Lisa Intemann noted the progressive improvement in how the council was reporting the operational plan.
She also encouraged people to lodge submissions.
Community members will have the chance to provide feedback during pop-up sessions.
Community pop-up sessions will take place on March 27 from 11am to 1pm at High Street in Wauchope, April 2 from 11am to 1pm at Settlement City Shopping Centre and April 4 from 11am to 1pm at Port Central Shopping Centre.
