The Devonport Sports Infrastructure Master Plan, to be gtabled at Monday night's council meeting, has identified 30 projects, many of them listed as high priority, costing $79.1 million.

The plan says the expenditure needed would require the council to more than double it's current spend on sporting facilities from 4.5 per cent of its budget to 12.1 percent.
