Open Streets Cape Town will facilitate a series of walks with residents and the public to explore challenges and opportunities to make Long Street a more diversified, safe and attractive destination so that any changes on the street respond to needs and objectives of residents and other relevant businesses.
First sessions will take place on Thursday 5th September, 2013 from 13:00 to 14:00 and Saturday 7th September from 18:00 to 19:30
This will be the beginning of a series of walks that will help identify specific design components, planning parameters and avenues for community participation for short and long term changes.
Councillor Dave Bryant will be present to hear and respond to raised concerns.
The format will be an open discussion where you will have an opportunity to contribute your ideas, questions and concerns.
Suggestions compiled during this walk will be documented and disseminated to create greater awareness of how streets can better serve residents and businesses, and to encourage the participation of all who use our streets.
Please join us in an exercise of active learning and an exchange of knowledge. If you or others you know, can't make this event but would like to stay informed of future events and news, please let us know and we will add you to our mailing list.
There is a 25 guest limit; please register to ensure your spot.
