Talking Streets on Long Street

You are invited to join Open Streets in a public walk and discussion about how Long Street can be made safer, welcoming, inclusive, and more ‘open’ to people.

When:

Thursday 5th September, 2013 from 13:00 to 14:00
Saturday 7th September from 18:00 to 19:30

Where:

Corner of Long St. & Orange St. (in front of the Long Street Turkish Baths). The walk will be down Long Street and carried out to observe the different conditions during the day and after dark.

What:

Open Streets Cape Town will facilitate a conversation with residents and the public to explore challenges and opportunities to make Long Street a more diversified, safe and attractive destination so that any changes on the street respond to needs and objectives of residents and other relevant businesses. This will be the beginning of a series of walks that will help identify specific design components, planning parameters and avenues for community participation for short and long term changes.

Councillor Dave Bryant will be present to hear and respond to raised concerns. The format will be an open discussion where you will have an opportunity to contribute your ideas, questions and concerns. Suggestions compiled during this walk will be documented and disseminated to create greater awareness of how streets can better serve residents and businesses, and to encourage the participation of all who use the streets.

There is a 25 guest limit; please register to ensure your spot on the details below.
