Plan for Melbourne. Part II : "Blueprints for change"

Crow, Ruth and Crow, Maurie (1970) Plan for Melbourne. Part II : "Blueprints for change". Modern Melbourne Committee of the Victorian State Committee of the Communist Party of Australia.


"Plan for Melbourne" has appeared thus far in two parts: Part 1. Facts and Principles (Published Feb. 1969) Part 2. "Blueprints for Change" (This publication) Part 1 was prepared by the Modern Melbourne Committee for the Victorian State Conference of the Communist Party of Australia in November 1968. It was pre-circulated to all delegates, pre-conference discussion resulted in a number of amendments, the final draft was carried by the Conference, and then it was published. The procedure for Part 2 has been different. The more detailed proposals advanced for the most part, fall within the general framework of the general principles adopted for Part I. The Modern Melbourne Committee commissioned the husband and wife team of Maurie and Ruth Crow to write it, and the authors take responsibility for the ideas in this document, which are published for simultaneous discussion and action by members of the Communist Party and the public at large. It is hoped that these blueprints for change will play some part in preparing for a worthwhile tomorrow by drawing attention to some of the immediate problems of our city and its citizens, and by advancing some ideas on how to tackle these challenges. Part 2 comprises: * Updated community services * Transport - an alternative * Urban renewal
