Twelve groups are in line for a share of $83,421 in council community grants.
Allocations under round two of the 2018-2019 Community Grants are up for endorsement at the Port Macquarie-Hastings Council meeting on Wednesday, May 15.
A recommendation proposes to award financial assistance through the grant program to 12 community organisations.
Some 10 community groups are proposed to benefit from the general community grants and two organisations are proposed to receive placemaking grants.
The grants support community groups and not-for-profit organisations to establish community-based projects.
Meanwhile, a report details the process behind a decision to place the new Laurieton pedestrian crossing in its proposed location.
The report is in response to a question from mayor Peta Pinson.
A growing number of residents in Laurieton would like the proposed new pedestrian crossing on Bold Street moved from the entrance of the Coles carpark to the exit.
Residents cite pedestrian safety and accessibility issues to the chemist opposite Coles as their main motivation for wanting the crossing moved a few metres.
The pedestrian crossing is earmarked for Bold Street between Tunis Street and Seymour Street.
The council report features a timeline.
The preliminary detailed design, completed in July 2018, included the location of the pedestrian crossing adjacent to 73 Bold Street, the council report said.
The Local Traffic Committee considered the pedestrian crossing in October 2018 and two months later the council decided to go ahead with the location included in council report.
Cr Geoff Hawkins is poised to raise another matter with a Camden Haven focus.
The item follows a submission from the Revive Lake Cathie group to the draft 2019-2020 operational plan.
Revive Lake Cathie is behind a push to restore the lake to health.
The council meeting begins at 5.30pm on Wednesday, May 15 at the council chambers in Burrawan Street.
