The Junction Place revised master plan will be presented to Wodonga councillors for determination at their final meeting of the year with the contentious Dan Murphy's bottle shop proposal to follow in February.
Confirmation of the revised timelines have been contained in a summary report compiled after community consultation carried out in September and August following revelations of the proposal to bump a previously approved cinema and entertainment complex with a liquor outlet on the corner of Elgin Boulevard and Smythe Street.
In addition to information sessions held virtually due to travel restrictions, 127 people completed an online survey which revealed more than half of recipients opposed the Dan Murphy's development.
As part of the revised master plan awaiting council approval, the cinema has been relocated to land facing High Street.
Former Wodonga Council executive Michael Gobel has repeatedly aired his concerns about changes to the original master plan sought by Development Victoria and Junction Place developer Central Place.
He said D-Day was looming up for councillors after early fears the changes would be considered under delegation of council staff.
"The moment of truth for councillors to defend the original vision for Junction Place is fast approaching," he said.
"I've got heightened concerns that a new application for a revised master plan remains a Trojan horse to getting approval for the Dan Murphy's bottle shop development on the site previously approved for the cinema."
Meanwhile, Wodonga Council has called a special meeting on Monday to consider the appointment of an acting chief executive when Mark Dixon departs.
Directors Deb Mudra and Leon Schultz had stints as acting chief executive when Mr Dixon's predecessor Patience Harrington left in late 2018.
A community forum is also being held on Monday.
