Enterprise I'm Here Report
The Enterprise I'm Here report, and the process leading to its development, is the culmination of a number of initiatives designed to remember and honour the positive impacts of the Enterprise Hostel in Springvale.

The Council That Welcomed Diversity
This paper has been prepared to document the visionary and innovative response of the City of Springvale to a dramatic increase in the cultural diversity of the residents as a result of the establishment of the Enterprise Migrant Hostel in 1970.

An Important Opportunity
This 2013 paper outlines a proposal to  reflect the area’s rich “Enterprise” history in the redevelopment of the Springvale library and community hub.
