Review & Update – Moving towards Phase 2 of the Future Melbourne project
Below is an extract from the December edition of the Future Melbourne newsletter. To view more information about this project visit http://evillagemelbourne.com.au/. Sustainable Melbourne was proud to work with the University of Melbourne and the City of Melbourne to hold two Future Melbourne forums – click on the ‘Sustainable Cities Round Tables’ tag above to view footage from these events.
“The Future Melbourne project is a large undertaking which began way back in May (in 2007) and is divided into five phases. Phase 1, information gathering, is now complete. Your collective contributions have been enormous with over 500 posts discussing key issues, sharing ideas, solutions and general comment, to help shape the Citys options going forward.
The early Phases of the Future Melbourne project are about gathering and analysing ideas and information, and have, so far involved consultation with more than 1,000 people, groups and organisations, including those from the eVillage.
The Future Melbourne project has now entered Phase 2 ‘Considering the Options’. In this phase, the City of Melbourne is seeking your collaboration as we transform the Values and Issues identified in Phase 1 into a series of Options for the future of our city.
These Options offer a range of different ‘futures’, depending on which options we choose. As the Plan develops the City of Melbourne will continue to work with the Melbourne community in considering and evaluating these Options, and exploring where each will take us in the future. Through this process, we will collectively refine the Options into real possibilities for the future of our city.
