​Cancelled Foreshore Freeway project RFP (Request for proposals) does not mean the project is dead and buriedRequest for Proposals for the future of the Foreshore Freeway Precinct cancelled.<p>​​​Last week the City Manager informed me that the formal Request for Proposals for the future of the Foreshore Freeway Precinct was to be cancelled following consideration of the appeals against the identification of one qualifying bidder.   <br>The City Manager, as the appeal authority, cancelled the RFP based on the appeals he received and after taking legal advice.<br><br>In July 2016 we launched the Request for Proposals for the future development of the Foreshore Freeway Precinct.  The commencement of a formal process to address the unfinished freeways, and the future development of the 6-hectare precinct, followed decades of uncertainty and inaction.  <br> <br>Growing traffic volumes in and out of the city centre has resulted in intolerable congestion which needs to be addressed.  The 6 hectares of prime City-owned land, sterilised by the uncertain future of the unfinished freeways, presented an opportunity for traffic congestion to be addressed without burdening the ratepayers with the costs of what was always viewed as unaffordable infrastructure.  <br> <br>The land also presented an opportunity for us to deliver on one of our key pillars – building an inclusive city – by ensuring that affordable housing was included in any development proposal.<br><br>Our approach to addressing traffic congestion and the need for inner-city affordable housing was unique and innovative and we were excited to receive six compelling and innovative proposals.  We are extremely grateful to the bidders for their proposals and their efforts.<br><br>It is disappointing that our first attempt did not work out.  However, the cancellation of the RFP does not mean that the project is cancelled.  The need to address the future of the unfinished freeways remains.So too does the need ensure access to affordable housing in our city centre.</p><p>​The 6ha Foreshore Freeway Precinct is the last remaining undeveloped land in our inner city and the response to our RFP demonstrates a market appetite to develop this land even with the conditions we imposed:</p><p>1. ​Address traffic congestion.<br> 2. Include affordable housing.<br> 3. Deal with apartheid spatial planning .<br> 4. Ensure integra​tion of different communities and income levels and establish inclusive communities as committed to in the DA’s national manifesto.<br> 5.Provide inclusive spaces to be funded by partnerships with private sponsors and leveraging City assets and optimisation ​these assets to drive economic benefits for the City in line with the DA’s manifesto for Cape Town.​​</p><p>Leveraging City-owned land to address service delivery needs is also consistent with our Integrated Development Plan.</p><p>The City Manager has agreed that the RFP will be redrafted to address concerns raised during the appeal <br> <br>I wish to thank the developers who participated in our first RFP.  I trust that they will understand that in trying something innovative and unique we had no precedent to reply upon and I hope that they will be in a position to participate again when the new RFP is issued.<br><br><br><strong>End</strong> </p>2018-07-21T22:00:00Z1
Fire and Rescue Service welcomes new recruits​​​​​The City’s newest firefighter recruits earned their crests and axes after an intensive selection process and training course. <span>​​​​​<p>The City’s newest firefighter recruits earned their crests and axes after an intensive selection process and training course. </p><p>Would-be firefighters undergo a physical assessment that require them to go up against the clock and complete set exercises including pushups, sit-ups and a 2,4 kilometre run. Once they’ve cleared that hurdle, they have to pass a written assessment before attending a final interview. </p> <figure class="subtopic-fullsize-img"> <img class="responsive" src="https://resource.capetown.gov.za/cityassets/Media%20Centre/fire%20fighters%2022.jpg" alt="" style="width:781px;" /> </figure></span><span><p>​​​​​​</p><p>Only once they have passed all of the selection criteria do they become learner firefighters. Once formally recruited, they undergo eight months of training that includes firefighting, hazardous materials awareness and first aid training.  </p><p>‘Firefighting continues to be one of those careers that capture the imagination. It’s one of the things many young children tell you they want to be when they grow up. For these 25 new recruits, the dream is now a reality and I have every confidence that they will wear the uniform with pride and execute their duties in similar fashion</p> <figure class="subtopic-fullsize-img"> <img class="responsive" src="https://resource.capetown.gov.za/cityassets/Media%20Centre/fire%20fighters%20-demonstration%2033.jpg" alt="" /> </figure></span><span><p>‘The residents of this city rely heavily on the service that our firefighters provide. A cursory glance at our fire statistics, particularly in summer, is the clearest indicator yet of how crucial this service is. But it’s not just fires – many of our fire stations are also the first port of call for trauma cases and our firefighters are also first responders in many motor vehicle accidents. So the uniform comes with great responsibility,’ said the City’s Mayoral Committee Member for Safety and Security; and Social Services, Alderman JP Smith.</p> <figure class="subtopic-fullsize-img"> <img class="responsive" src="https://resource.capetown.gov.za/cityassets/Media%20Centre/fire%20fighters11.jpg" alt="" style="width:727px;" /> </figure>​​</span><p>The 25 new firefighters are aged between 22 and 37, comprising 18 males and seven females who hail from a range of areas including Khayelitsha, Delft, Philippi and Worcester. They will be deployed to 12 of the City’s 32 fire stations. In the next week, they’ll undergo orientation at their respective stations, which includes getting their gear assigned, before starting active duty at the beginning of August.</p><p><strong>The best overall students were:</strong><br>Baigum Abrahams (24) from Strandfontein (Q&A below)<br>Mthandazo Hafi (25) from Mfuleni</p><p><strong>The most improved students were:</strong><br>Archibald Msindo (37) from Parklands (Q&A below)<br>Siyabulela Tase (29) from Philippi </p><p>‘Investing in staff is important to the Fire and Rescue Service, because there is always a need to fill vacancies left by retirement or resignations and, of course, as our population grows, so too does the need for more firefighters. We will likely have another intake at the training academy during the course of this financial year. Next week, we will also be hosting trials for our seasonal firefighter posts. Apart from the human resources, the fire service is also investing in new fire stations, <strong>vehicles and other equipment to further bolster their offering to the public,’ added Alderman Smith.</strong></p><p><strong>End</strong><br></p>2018-07-19T22:00:00Z1

Mayor rejoices with Fisantekraal residents as they take ownership of their new homesThe City’s Executive Mayor, Patricia De Lille, visists Fisantekraal families in their new homes. <p>Today, I visited some of the families in Fisantekraal who moved into their new homes this past weekend. Mayoral Committee Member for the Transport and Urban Development, Cllr Brett Herron, and I were glad to share in the joy of the new homeowners who have been living in backyards and informal settlements for many years. </p><p>The group of 24 families, who moved into their new homes a few days ago, are part of the over 700 beneficiaries who have already moved into their homes. These homes were built during the first phase of the Greenville Garden Cities development in Fisantekraal, near Durbanville.</p> <img class="responsive" src="https://resource.capetown.gov.za/cityassets/Media%20Centre/Fisantekraal-3.jpg" alt="" /><br> <p>The City and its implementing partner are working hard to finish the final 101 homes. The City expects to hand over all of the remaining homes by October 2018.</p><p>Meanwhile, I am also excited to see that Phase 2 of the project has already started and the first group of families will move in as soon as October this year. The second phase will see about 500 homes being built for beneficiaries on the City’s housing waiting list. </p><p>This project forms part of a greater catalytic housing development which will eventually boast approximately 4 000 housing opportunities, social housing, and financed-linked houses. It also includes plans for schools, community facilities, public spaces and transport infrastructure. The houses are planned to be constructed over six phases.</p><p>Meeting the new homeowners is always a humbling experience and I was glad to share in their joy of owning their first home. New homeowners Makanetso and Polao Rabohome said that they had been living as backyarders since 2000 and they were grateful that this winter they didn’t have to worry about a roof leaking or water running through their home.</p> <img class="responsive" src="https://resource.capetown.gov.za/cityassets/Media%20Centre/Fisantekraal-1.jpg" alt="" /><br> <p>Polao works as a security guard and they were able to buy a new couch and cupboard for their home. Meeting new homeowners like the Rabohome family shows that when the City of Cape Town assists our residents who are most in need, these residents will take pride in their belongings and work to better their lives. Working together, we can make progress possible and ensure a more just and equal Cape Town.</p><p>Similarly, I visited Xolani Nake at his home where he lives with his three children. He has been staying in a nearby informal settlement for the last 7 years and lived as a backyarder before then. He told me it was wonderful for him to move into his new home because he had been moving around a lot and it was good to finally settle down.</p><p>I also met young Thobela Mekana who is disabled. Both his parents passed away four years ago and his younger brother Athenkosi, 17, helps to look after him.</p> <img class="responsive" src="https://resource.capetown.gov.za/cityassets/Media%20Centre/Fisantekraal-2.jpg" alt="" /><br> <p>The City of Cape Town is committed to providing our residents with dignity through home ownership and sustainable communities. The City is no longer building homes for specific racial groups in exclusive areas but is rather building integrated communities. I look forward to visiting these new homeowners again in the future to see how new friendships and an integrated community thrives as a result of the development.</p><p>The success of this project and delivering homes is proof of the City’s commitment to redressing the imbalances of the past and ensuring that we realise the goals of the Organisational Development and Transformation Plan by achieving excellence in service delivery.</p><p>‘The Greenville Garden Cities housing project is an excellent example of how we can build integrated human settlements with a sense of place. The architecture is appealing and reminiscent of the Bo-Kaap, the street design and landscaping give a sense of that this is a community and the incorporation of trading places, and even a dedicated building for an animal-welfare organisation, provide the components of a place that immediately feels like home.</p> <img class="responsive" src="https://resource.capetown.gov.za/cityassets/Media%20Centre/Fisantekraal-4.jpg" alt="" /><br> <p>‘This is a massive project in terms of numbers and will go a long way towards addressing our housing deficit. Despite the scale of the project, Garden Cities have managed, through careful urban design and architecture, to give the project a sense of neighbourhood. We need to acknowledge how important this is and learn from this approach for future projects,’ Cllr Herron said.</p><p>We wish the new homeowners all the best as they start a new and exciting chapter in their lives and appeal to them to take care of their homes.</p><p><strong>End</strong></p>2018-07-18T22:00:00Z1
