Melbourne is a happening city where the core strength lies in its people. One of the major goals of the “Future Melbourne citizens” is to make the place a “city for the people” by making it a great place to be, strengthening the community, introducing affordable living for the residents, developing affordable community facilities and services, making it a family-friendly city and supporting the homeless people. The project proposal has been designed to focus on the priority of making Melbourne a “family-friendly city”.
The fundamental aim of the project is to strengthen the facilities for the families that live in the location by strengthening the education setting, healthcare setting, and overall environment. The challenges of people could be addressed by strengthening the current facilities (Care.com, 2018).
High-level project description

The project would be limited to Melbourne city and it would try to make the place family-friendly.
The key deliverables of the “Future Melbourne 2026” would include better amenities for the families in form of a better educational system, banking facilities, and a robust security system (Heagney, 2016).
The key features of the project include improved safety aspects, a robust service and facility model including urban location, and proper communication facilities.
