Nomzamo Community Hall Precinct has been selected for inclusion into the City’s Quality Public Spaces programme by the City of Cape Town.
The hall has been chosen out of 23 sub-councils in the province.
Urban Design consultants, Holm Jordaan Group, working in association with Kayad Consulting Engineers and Megan Anderson Landscaping Architect, have prepared a Preliminary Concept Plan.
“The purpose of this upgrade is to get interaction within the community, enhance and beautify the area and get the communities together where they can hang out, have meetings or trade,” says City spokesperson Julia Maranyane.
Maranyane adds that other improvements include the relocation of the fence around the hall, upgrading the play area and lawns, as well as tree planting and pavement repairs along and behind the wall. Work is to be completed by December 2009.
Proposals to transform this precinct into a quality space will be presented for public comment at a meeting for residents of the Sub-Council area to be held at 18:30 on Wednesday, 9 July 2008 at the Nomzamo Community Hall in Michael Street.
