A comprehensive plan to address Launceston's transport future will be imminently released for public comment, the City of Launceston council voted on Thursday.
The 'Greater Launceston Transport Vision and Work Plan' is an outline of the policy direction of local and state government when it comes to transport.
It details 28 projects, initiatives and programs to be delivered by local and state government, as well as other key stakeholders.
Parking, off-road cycle paths, and public transport were three elements of the plan mentioned by councillors in their remarks about the plan.
At Thursday's council meeting, Cr Janie Finlay said she was "really looking forward to seeing the response from the community".
"We want to create a livable region ... with equitable access, and that the way people move around is efficient and sustainable," she said.

The plan will be uploaded onto its own website once all partners in its creation have agreed to release it for consultation.
The partner groups are the City of Launceston council, Dorset Council, George Town Council, Meander Valley Council, Northern Midlands Council, West Tamar Council, and, within the state government, the Department of State Growth: Network Planning, the Department of State Growth: Passenger Transport, and the Department of State Growth: Infrastructure Policy.
There will be four weeks of community consultation on the plan, which is planned to be launched in "February or March".
The plan "aims to support the continued population and economic growth with the greater Launceston region, and the establishment of a sustainable and prosperous region", acting general manager Leigh Handley said in the February 6 council meeting agenda.
"The greater Launceston region is growing and with this growth comes a variety of impacts on our region's transport networks and services," he said.
"[We need to] effectively manage these impacts ... whilst investing in a transport system that meets community needs for work, education, recreation and tourism purposes."
