Geelong councillors will tonight vote on whether to allocate $50,000 to develop a strategy for a fast rail service between Geelong and Melbourne.
Mayor Bruce Harwood has put forward the motion, saying the document will set out a clear vision for regional fast rail and how it will be achieved.
Cr Hardwood says the city needs to be the local voice on the issue, as Geelong begins bringing together key stakeholders as part of its New Spirit of Progress Committee (NSOP).
The committee includes representatives from local councils and organisations including Deakin University, Avalon Airport and Australia Rail Institutes.
The mayor's proposal would see stakeholders asked to make financial contributions to ensure the fast rail project maintains momentum.
Councillors will also consider putting aside another $50,000 from the 2019/20 budget to support the ongoing operations of the NSOP.
Tonight's "community focus" council meeting will be held in Drysdale from 7pm.
