FOURTEEN people have registered to make public submissions on the Civic Hall at tomorrow night's Ballarat City Council meeting.
But the numbers are expected to increase before tomorrow's 4.30pm deadline.
It will be the public's last chance to appeal to the council before it formally considers a recommendation to demolish the building.
Earlier, mayor John Burt said he expected a diversity of opinion and strong debate in the chamber.
"There are nine councillors and those nine councillors all have their own point of view and those point of views will come out in the council chamber on Wednesday," Cr Burt said during a media briefing last week.
Community members wishing to speak must register with the council's governance unit by 4.30pm tomorrow.
Each speaker will have five minutes to state their case during the meeting at Ballarat Town Hall from 7pm.
At the conclusion of the final submission, the council will then debate the item.
The council-led recommendation calls on council officers to prepare a planning application for the hall's demolition.
As part of tomorrow's vote, the council will also consider endorsing a long-term vision for the site, which focuses on developing a 'heart' of Ballarat.
Cr Burt said the vision, identified by the majority of councillors through their workshop processes, included a significant extension to the Ballarat Regional Library, new community, youth and outdoor spaces and a future development site for the private sector.
