Cowra Shire Council will consider a recommendation later this month to place its draft CBD traffic management and redevelopment masterplan on public exhibition.
Council's general committee this week voted to recommend the council place the place on exhibition despite some councilors having reservations with some aspects of the draft plan.
Under the plan wide load traffic will be diverted from Kendal Street which will receive a major facelift.
The facelift would involve a centre median strip, street trees and a change to parking.
Chairman of Council's Working Party on the project, Cr Ray Walsh said this week he encouraged the public to look at the plan in a positive frame of mind.
He said the council doing nothing in regards to the main street simply isn't an option.
Cr Bruce Miller told this week's council meeting he had problems with parts of the draft plan.
"I'm not as enthusiastic about the plan," Cr Miller said.
"I do agree there needs to be work done in the main street but I don't believe the consultants have done a lot of work since the last time we discussed this."
Cr Miller said he encouraged residents to offer feedback.
"We want not only positive feedback, I'd encourage all of the community to be involved," Cr Miller said.
Whilst not supporting all of the draft Cr Miller said he was in support of the plan being placed on exhibition.
He also reminded his fellow councilors that Kendal Street is part of the mid western highway.
"Unless we shift the Mid Western Highway Kendal Street is the highway, its not a pedestrian mall," Cr Miller said.
Cowra mayor Bill West had the final word, pointing out that an aim of the plan is to improve pedestrian safety in Kendal Street and that the CBD is in need of a facelift.
"It is looking a bit tired," Cr West said the of CBD.
"This is a long term plan, there is no bulldozer waiting to start this work.
"We need to move forward or we will be sitting here in three years having the same discussion.
'We need public comment positive and negative, it is about moving forward," he said of placing the draft plan on exhibition.
The draft also proposes work be carried out in Railway Lane and along Redfern Street.
