Have your say on larger MID

2016-12-06 06:01

A public meeting to discuss the proposed change in the boundaries of the Muizenberg Improvement District (MID) is planned for this week.

The MID is planning to expand its borders to include Clevedon, Cromer, Henley and Wherry roads. There are about 90 properties in the Wherry triangle, made up mainly of residential homes and blocks of flats.

Expansion processMID provides municipal top-up services, which include keeping a watch on problem buildings, joint safety operations, working with homeless people and vagrants, maintaining gardens in public areas, cleaning of streets and clearing of gutters and weeds.

Following ongoing calls for MID to extend its boundaries, a cost analysis was undertaken and the extension proposed.

After MID members voted in favour of extending the border, the board was able to continue with the process prescribed by the City and legislation for special rating areas (SRAs).

In terms of SRA legislation at least 60% of the property owners need to sign consent before the boundary can be extended (“MID looks to expand”, People’s Post, 31 May).

The voting showed 62% of property owners are in favour of the extension, and the application to amend the boundaries of MID has been submitted to the City.

Public meetingThe proposal is currently open for public comment. Property owners living in the Wherry Road triangle are invited to a public meeting at Planet Kids on Thursday at 18:30.

If the application is successful the Wherry Road triangle area will be included from July next year.

V Objections to the proposal can be submitted in writing to the City manager, PO Box 298, Cape Town, 8000 or hand delivered to the City manager, 5th floor, Podium Block, Civic Centre, 12 Hertzog Boulevard, Cape Town or emailed to eddie.scott@capetown.­gov.za. Objections must be received by the City by Friday 16 December.
