Spring cleaning and greening Woodstock
The Woodstock ID embarked on small urban beautification projects this year, which we hope to continue into the next year. The project initially started with the revamping of some of the old public benches in Victoria Road with the help of local businesses. As part of the ongoing project, the WID augmented these seating areas with large planter pots to bring some greenery to the area and will also add public cigarette bins in their vicinity to keep the area clean.
More potted plants were also placed along Victoria Road near the intersection of Mountain Road to create a barrier between pedestrians and vehicle traffic in the adjacent parking area.
Cleaning up the Woodstock Drop-off Facility
Due to the abandoned Government-owned properties in the vicinity of the Woodstock Drop-off facility, the area surrounding the drop-off facility seems less desirable. These often form the subject of complaints raised by the community and members of the public wanting to use the facility.
In partnership with the City of Cape Town, the WID embarked on cleaning up the public space on the approach to the drop-off facility. It is our hope that the City will continue to improve these areas while the WID stands ready to assist in the future to keep the area more accessible.
New CID By-law & Policy
The new CID by-law and policy came into effect from 1 July, which serves “To provide for the establishment of City Improvement Districts; to provide for additional rates; and to provide for matters incidental thereto.”
The City of Cape Town’s by-law and policy regarding the establishment and management of City Improvement Districts has gone through several iterations over the years since the concept of a CID was first tested in the year 2000.
The latest revisions of the by-law and policy comes as more than 50 CIDs are now in operation.
The by-law is available to download on our About page.
Logging a service request with the City
You too can assist with urban management and the growing number of faults and service requests that the City and WID deal with on a daily basis. By reporting water and electricity faults and other maintenance requirements such as potholes, missing road signs or blocked stormwater drains, through the correct channels, we and the City are able to attend to these service requests and log their status in an effective way.
