It’s wish list time again!
The discretionary budget for Subcouncil 15 (which includes Wards 51, 52, 53, 55, 56 & 57) will be allocated in the next few months for the period 1 July 2012 – 30 June 2013, which means if you have something you feel strongly about, you have until 21st October 2011 to send it in. This is part of the Integrated Development Plan (IDP) for the City of Cape Town.
If you are within the Upper Woodstock Resident’s Association’s (UWRA) boundaries (Nelson Mandela Boulevard to Melbourne Rd to Main Rd to Queens Park Ave), you can send any suggestion to UWRA head Roger Hislop (firstname.lastname@example.org) directly who will collate the list before sending it on. However, if you are in another area or you wish to send your suggestion directly, you can send any suggestions directly to Melany Levendall at the City Manager offices (see full details below).
Unfortunately the discretionary funds are spread over all wards and not just Woodstock, though last year, UWRA did manage to properly enclose the Victoria Walk park as well as upgrade the facilities there allowing dogs and children to play safely in the park.
Other priorities according to Lee van den Berg, head of the UPRA Aesthetics committee, are traffic calming measures as cars continue to speed through the Woodstock streets, though some progress has been made in some areas.
Personally, I’m wishing for a tram system through Woodstock. Maybe not today but…
