Some residents have unrealistic expectations of the money they might get, others hate the idea of an interchange.
But on Tuesday at 6.30pm in the Tucabia community hall, residents of Tucabia, Minnie Water, Wooli, Ulmarra and Pillar Valley will get the chance to discuss the ramifications of the possible relocation of the Pacific Highway through the area.
As part of the Roads and Traffic Authority's process for considering highway upgrades, it has appointed community liaison groups (CLGs) to garner community feedback.
Members of the Tucabia CLG said the meeting was called in response to community concerns and to encourage community members to have their say.
"We want to encourage the community to raise issues now, while the planning process is still underway," they said in a statement.
"(Residents) raise concerns about where the highway might go, noise, pollution, the impact on native vegetation and animals, restrictions on stock movements, all sorts of impact.
"We're not trying to stop the highway, we just want the local community to have as much input as possible."
