The Cape Town Partnership (CTP) is launching a series of Central City Partners Forums that aim to keep city stakeholders updated and informed about activities, developments and projects that are upcoming in the Central City. This first free forum takes place at 08h30 at the Cape Sun in Strand Street on Tuesday 24 August and all who have an interest in the future of the Central City are invited to attend.
Following the very successful series of 2010 World Cup Partners Forums where local stakeholders were kept updated on plans and roll out for the World Cup the intention is to retain these relationships and to offer a space for interaction with interested and affected parties. If you are living, working, or simply have an interest in what is happening in the City then this Forum will be of interest to you. This is the chance to gather information from the experts on how, as partners, we can retain and capitalize on the gains of the World Cup.
At this first forum speakers will be reporting back on World Cup 2010, giving an update on the IRT system and discussing post 2010 development projects.
The 2010 World Cup allowed us to fast-track many infrastructural developments in the Central City, for example, public spaces, pedestrian routes, cycle tracks and public transport. It also helped to change attitudes with regard to walking the City, and using public spaces and public transport.
However, much more still needs to be done. We are recovering from the effects of the global recession which has led to many property developments being stalled. We also have to make more progress on the provision of affordable accommodation and get more people into jobs.
The aim of the Central City Partners Forum is to bring stakeholders together to assess the continuing socio-economic challenges facing our city and to find shared solutions.
