The president of the Beach to Beach Riverwalk committee is urging the community to have its say on the Camden Haven Community Plan.
Penny Small is also a member of the Camden Haven Community Action Team (C-CAT) which has been working on a plan for the area over the past 12 months.
Mrs Small said it's important for people to provide feedback if they care about the future of the region.
"It's an opportunity to create actions for preservation and progress, both environmentally and economically in the Camden Haven," she said.
The group agreed due to " overwhelming community feedback" the most urgent priority is for the region to become a more connected community.
"This can be achieved by completing the planning and construction of the three projects Beach to Beach, Creek to Creek and Schools to Schools shared pathways," the community plan states.
"As well as identifying/constructing key pathways across the community to ensure connectivity between key public spaces, beaches, waterways, reserves, national parks and recreational parks."
Mrs Small urged people to take the time to read the Camden Haven Community Plan and give their feedback on its detail.
She said it's vital to help the Port Macquarie-Hastings Council shape the future of the Camden Haven and give a clear message about how important it is to commit to completing the pathways.
The plan is available to view in hard copy at the library or people can view it online via https://haveyoursay.pmhc.nsw.gov.au/CamdenHaven
Alternatively people can email email@example.com or post a response to Port Macquarie-Hastings Council, PO Box 84, Port Macquarie NSW 2444.
The deadline for feedback is Sunday, October 20.
