THE Launceston City Council will on Monday decide on whether to request a 40km/h speed reduction around the Launceston College precinct.
Alderman Ian Norton will move a motion that the council ask the Department of Infrastructure, Energy and Resources to reduce speeds on roads around the college before and after school hours.
Alderman Norton said the school had more than 2000 students attending.
He said it was one of the closest schools to any city centre in Australia.
The council will also be asked to approve the introduction of health and fitness programs at Launceston Aquatic.
The proposal will see $460,000 invested by the council to build fitness and gymnasium facilities.
A report on the centre by research consultancy firm Simply Great Leisure recently found it would need to gain 274,000 more aquatic visits to break even if it continued to run without health and fitness programs.
Health and fitness programs are expected to attract up to 150,000 a year.
The report showed 17 per cent of surveyed Launceston residents had gym memberships with Simply Great Leisure, predicting there could be up to 3000 more people living in Launceston who were interested in health and fitness.
In other agenda matters:
Alderman Norton will ask the council to make representations to the state government demanding flaws in the Mowbray Connector on the Northern Outlet be remedied.
Deputy Mayor Jeremy Ball will ask the council for in- principle support to make Launceston Tasmania's first child friendly city, approved by the United Nations Children's Fund.
The council will be asked to give approval for construction of a building on Boland Street to be used as a takeaway food store.
The council will finalise by vote its submission to the state government on its Launceston Flood Risk Management Bill.
