City Parks spring into action to mow parks and vergesThe City of Cape Town’s Recreation and Parks Department is aware that their mowing programme this time of year causes equal doses of delight and dismay.<p>The City of Cape Town’s Recreation and Parks Department is aware that their mowing programme this time of year causes equal doses of delight and dismay.</p><p>‘Mowing always causes controversy, especially around spring, as some residents are delighted with trimmed lawns while others prefer the wild abandon of flowers. The department has started to mow our parks, open spaces, cemeteries and metro road verges, even though there has already been an explosion of annuals and perennials which germinates in the wet soils, during the warmer temperatures,’ said the City of Cape Town’s Mayoral Committee Member for Safety and Security; and Social Services, Alderman JP Smith. </p><p>Many residents and visitors to the areas where the flowers occur contend that they should be left untouched and not mowed until the seeds have ripened and dropped. </p><p>Some of these blooming arrivals are remnants of indigenous renosterbos and strandveld, which can transform open spaces into Namaqualand-type flower shows. </p><p>Other vegetation making their appearance includes weed grasses such as Common wild oats and broadleaf weeds such as Patterson’s curse. These weeds quickly push their flower heads upwards and reach 1,5 metres high, even within a matter of days after being mowed.</p><p>‘Mowing causes contention. Residents complain every year, either for areas to be mowed or for the wild flowers to be left undisturbed. Each spring we have numerous requests for both,’ said Alderman Smith. </p><p>Recreation and Parks officials are committed to prompt and effective service delivery as the city has more than 6,461 hectares of land to be mowed, which is no small task. </p><p>‘Depending on the conservation element that needs to be protected mowing programmes take conservation principles into account. Therefore, there are many open areas throughout the city, including identified biodiversity areas or nature sensitive areas where mowing does not take place and where spring flowers can be seen. However, all efforts are being made to keep our parks and sidewalks tidy and properly maintained,’ said Alderman Smith.</p><p>Generally, if residents want the City to stop cutting grass in a certain park, they need to submit their request in writing to their local Recreation and Parks Department with signatures of support from neighbours, indicating that they agree with the request. Staff are then instructed not to mow those parks while the spring flowers are in bloom, usually during September and October.</p><p>‘The only risk is that we may receive complaints from people who feel that the uncut grass is untidy and not being properly maintained. Due to the conducive weather conditions of spring, fast growth of grass can be expected. Grass on the sidewalks would still need to be cut in order to ensure that safety standards are upheld and there is clear visibility for pedestrians and motorists. </p><p>‘We should also not underestimate the impact that the drought has had over the past years, in seeds not germinating or flowering as much as in previous years when there was enough water. We will truly see the impact in September and October. At the moment it is still winter and the flowers that bloom now are sporadic due to the sudden warm weather and recent rainfall,’ added Alderman Smith.</p><p>The City is committed to making Cape Town an inclusive place where residents feel safe and proud of their parks. </p><p>Concerns about uncut grass in parks and on sidewalks, can be directed to <a>021 400 9538</a> or <a>021 400 4688</a> or <a>021 400 9538</a>.</p><p> <strong>End</strong></p>2018-08-15T22:00:00Z1
City to spend around R40 million on securing community facilitiesThe City of Cape Town’s Social Services Directorate is planning a major financial injection this financial year to keep community facilities safe from criminals.<p>The City of Cape Town’s Social Services Directorate is planning a major financial injection this financial year to keep community facilities safe from criminals.</p><p>The Directorate’s facilities include clinics, libraries, community centres, sports fields and resorts, among others. Some of these facilities are prone to acts of vandalism and crime, with millions lost as a result of ongoing repairs and replacement of stolen equipment and infrastructure, but also untold costs in the disruption of services to communities.</p><p>In a bid to stem the tide, Social Services plan to implement a number of initiatives in this financial year, including:</p><ul><li><div style="text-align:left;">R10,1 million for security hardening measures like burglar bars, alarm systems, high mast lighting, etc.;</div></li><li><div style="text-align:left;">R20 million for the deployment of Facility Protection Officers; and</div></li><li><div style="text-align:left;">R9,8 million for the deployment of 312 Safety Wardens</div></li></ul><p>The security upgrades and staff deployment will happen city-wide, with a special focus on hotspot areas.</p><p>‘The City has hundreds of facilities designed to cater for the needs of the communities, but too often things fall flat because the facility is damaged and service delivery or access is disrupted. It is not just hard on the pocket as a result of the running repairs, but it affects the morale of both residents and staff members.</p><p>‘For example, a seemingly simple act of cable theft at a clinic could have far-reaching consequences. If there is no electricity, staff can’t work and patients can’t be treated. The clinic is closed until the damage is repaired and frankly, that doesn’t necessarily happen immediately. So just the cost to people’s lives and their time from these selfish acts is immense,’ said the City’s Mayoral Committee Member for Safety and Security; and Social Services, Alderman JP Smith.</p><p>Apart from security hardening measures, the Social Services Directorate is also funding the deployment of 90 Auxiliary Law Enforcement Officers and 70 safety wardens through the Facility Protection initiative. It started as a pilot project in 2017, where Neighbourhood Watch members in good standing were trained and employed through the Expanded Public Works Programme (EPWP) to conduct patrols in and around facilities in their areas. This initiative creates a visible presence around high-risk facilities, and the people employed know the area well and have a vested interest in safeguarding their communities.</p><p>Additionally, 312 Safety Wardens are to be deployed to hotspot facilities through the Recreation and Parks Access Control and Protection project. The recruitment of Safety Wardens is an additional initiative to help address the ongoing theft, vandalism and security issues prevalent at City facilities and spaces.  </p><p>They will be tasked with:</p><ul><li><div style="text-align:left;">basic access control at facilities and monitoring facility usage over weekends and after hours;</div></li><li><div style="text-align:left;">engaging users, clubs, individuals or members of the public about facility use or any by-law contraventions;</div></li><li><div style="text-align:left;">alerting Law Enforcement or line staff of any vandalism, theft, by-law or other contraventions; </div></li><li><div style="text-align:left;">monitoring and recording water usage, wastage or any contraventions of the water restrictions; and</div></li><li><div style="text-align:left;">monitor and record electricity usage at facilities</div></li></ul><p>‘Given the number of facilities across the metropole, it is challenging to keep tabs on all of them, all of the time. The Safety Wardens are not security guards, but rather eyes and ears on the ground that we hope will help prevent problems, but also highlight problems when they do arise so that these can be addressed quickly.</p><p>‘We are spending a lot of money on improving the protection of our facilities, but the users and surrounding communities also have a role to play. These community facilities are crucial to positive youth and community development, and so we can’t sit idly and allow a few individuals to destroy that which benefits so many. I appeal to residents to blow the whistle on criminals and to be vigilant and report any suspicions of wrongdoing to the City’s Law Enforcement Department or the South African Police Service,’ added Alderman Smith.</p><p><br><strong>End</strong></p>2018-08-14T22:00:00Z1
Public participation for redevelopment sites for carbon neutral development recommendedThis proposed redevelopment of the sites forms part of the City’s commitment to the Cities Climate Leadership Group (C40) Reinventing Cities initiative<p>Today, 15 August 2018, the City of Cape Town’s Mayoral Committee recommended that Council authorise a public participation process in terms of the Municipal Asset Transfer Regulations (MATR) to make a number of sites in the metro available for redevelopment via a competitive process for the purpose of carbon neutral development. </p><p>This proposed redevelopment of the sites forms part of the City’s commitment to the Cities Climate Leadership Group (C40) Reinventing Cities initiative. </p><p>Cape Town is a proud member of the C40, an international organisation created as a forum for cities to share strategies for reducing carbon emissions and spurring global action in confronting climate change. </p><p>C40 connects more than 90 of the world's greatest cities and its membership represents over 650 million people and one quarter of the global economy. </p><p>Given the number of properties that are proposed to make available for carbon neutral development, some of which are considered high value assets, the MATR accordingly requires Council's authority to commence with public participation.</p><p>The four sites identified for this purpose are the Civic Centre Woodstock sidecar park, the Mouquet farm in Diep River, the Ottery site and the Bishop Lavis Town Centre site.</p><p>The redevelopment of these sites to allow for low carbon or carbon neutral demonstration projects would also strongly support the City's Transit Oriented Development Strategic Framework. </p><p>The Reinventing Cities is an international open competition initiated by C40 to stimulate innovative carbon neutral developments across the globe and to implement the best ideas to transform underutilised sites into beacons of sustainability and resiliency and act as a showcase for future zero-carbon urban developments. </p><p>This is to happen through an international call for development proposals for identified underutilised sites by open competitive tender invitation. </p><p>Bids received will be assessed and awarded in line with the specific legislation that applies locally in the particular participating cities, as well as specific environmental criteria.</p><p>The Reinventing Cities initiative aims to:</p><ul><li><div style="text-align:left;">help drive public policy making to support decarbonised, sustainable, intelligent and resilient Cities</div></li><li><div style="text-align:left;">support the implementation of new ideas and innovations that can be rolled-out on a global scale</div></li><li><div style="text-align:left;">actively drive collaboration between the private and public sectors to deliver new approaches to delivering low carbon urbanisation and</div></li><li><div style="text-align:left;">reduce the impact of emissions due to new green buildings (as buildings account for a large percentage of emissions in C40 member cities) </div></li></ul><p>To adhere to the Paris agreement, cities require new buildings to be as close to zero carbon as possible and existing buildings need high levels of retrofitting.</p><p>Projects selected through the Reinventing Cities initiative will serve as a model for carbon neutral development. These projects must demonstrate innovative climate solutions, provide local community benefits and must be able to be replicated in cities around the world. </p><p>Each project is to be developed on publicly-owned land, showcasing how partnerships between cities and the private sector can work to shape a carbon neutral future. </p><p>Development proposals would therefore need to address aspects that contribute towards a carbon neutral project, such as energy efficiency, resiliency, water management, mobility and transit orientation, waste management, sustainable building materials, among others.</p><p>Cape Town's commitment to participate in the C40 Reinventing Cities initiative is subject to Council considering the input from the public participation process and thereafter making the identified sites available in principle for such redevelopment purposes. </p><p><br><strong>End</strong> <br></p>2018-08-14T22:00:00Z1
City supports transformation through procurementEmpowering all residents is in line with the City’s Organisational Development and Transformation Plan which seeks to doing business with the City even easier. <p>The City of Cape Town is committed to redressing past injustices and to facilitate economic transformation. For the past financial year ending 30 June 2018, the City is pleased to report that approximately 95,76% – that is 204 507 out of 213 554 purchase orders – were placed with B-BBEE-compliant vendors. This is up from 92,7% for the 2016/17 financial year. <br><br>The total value of purchase orders for the 2017/18 financial year was R12 260 005 036 of which R11 248 300 552 was awarded to B-BBEE-compliant suppliers. <br><br>The number of B-BBEE service providers who conducted business with the City over the same period was 2 807 out of 3 167 in total. This equates to 88,63% of the service providers used.<br><br>‘B-BBEE verification in its current form considers factors such as ownership of the company, employment of historically disadvantaged individuals, the business’ efforts to develop historically disadvantaged employees, and whether the company makes use of previously disadvantaged suppliers in their operation,’ said the City’s Mayoral Committee Member for Finance, Councillor Johan van der Merwe.<br><br>‘This process helps ensure that economic development is not concentrated among one group, and that newer entrants to the market are not excluded by the established players. This is important if we are going to sustainably transform our local and national economy. As an opportunity city, which focuses on economic inclusion, we will maintain a strong focus on transformation in our supply chain,’ said Councillor Van der Merwe. <br><br>This commitment to empowering all residents is in line with the City’s Organisational Development and Transformation Plan which seeks to doing business with the City even easier. </p><p>Residents who would like to explore business opportunities with the City should please visit our tender portal which is accessible from the home page of our website: <a href="http://www.capetown.gov.za/" target="_blank">www.capetown.gov.za</a>. </p><p>Businesses can also bid on contracts for up to a maximum of R200 000 through the new eProcurement portal. All interested suppliers should visit  <a href="https://eservices.capetown.gov.za/irj/portal/" target="_blank">https://eservices.capetown.gov.za/irj/portal/</a> to register, and follow the prompts.</p><p><br><strong>End</strong><br></p>2018-08-14T22:00:00Z1
