The Advocate forum will take place at Devonport’s CMAX Cinemas on Monday from 6.30pm.
People will get a chance to view the project videos, including the 3D view of the $250 million plan to redevelop the city, and also ask questions of the council.
Community committee representatives will also be on hand including committee chairman, Tasmanian construction industry icon Royce Fairbrother.
The Living City master plan was launched at an event including the media, community leaders and business people last week, but The Advocate’s editor, Julian O’Brien, said this was a chance for anyone interested to come along.
‘‘Viewing the plan on the big screen really gives you a sense of the scale of the project the council has courageously undertaken,’’ Mr O’Brien said.
‘‘Interested people can come along at no cost, watch the videos and ask their questions of the decision-makers of the Living City project.
‘‘Living City is a project of regional significance, this community needs visions of this scale to progress and people need to understand how and why the plan has been formed and able to get right behind it’s success.’’
Devonport Mayor Steve Martin said the feedback on the master plan since its launch last week has been largely positive.
‘‘It’s been extremely positive. There’s a buzz of excitement and expectation around it and we have no other option than to make sure it comes to a reality,’’ Alderman Martin said.
He said the forum would provide a chance to answer many of the questions which have arisen from the launch.
The Advocate Living City community forum will be held at the CMAX Cinemas in Devonport from 6.30pm on Monday, August 18.
