A sweeping success story

14 Aug 2017

The CCID has teamed up with Khulisa Social Solutions to provide structured work opportunities for social development clients around Greenmarket Square.

In the past year, Greenmarket Square has become a hotspot for begging and other antisocial behaviour. Most of the people living on the street in the area are young adults and a large number of them have drug or alcohol dependencies.

The CCID’s Social Development department and Khulisa Social Solutions, therefore, decided to initiate a six-month pilot project to provide a harm reduction model for them.

Towards affordable accommodation in the Cape Town CBD

18 Jul 2017

There has been much talk about rising prices in the Cape Town Central City and surrounding areas, as residents desire and developers deliver the dream of an urban lifestyle.

As pressure mounts from government to insure inclusivity and downtowns struggle to incorporate homes for their own workforce, the question that now needs to be answered is how to begin to understand and deliver on a more inclusionary model that will be embraced by both the public and the private sectors while also addressing the “missing middle” vital to a downtown’s residential resilience.

In the Autumn 2017 issue of City Views, we let you in on the Central City’s dirty secret. Over a three-month period, the Cape Town Central City Improvement District’s (CCID) Urban Management department coordinated the removal of 807 incidents of graffiti, and cleaning of 8 074 drains and 370kg of cigarette butts tossed on pavements across the 1.62km2 CCID area.

Pretty gross, right? If you can stomach it, you can read the full story here.
