Phelamanga was appointed to assist the eThekwini Catalytic Projects Team with the facilitation of the Rivertown Precinct Public Information Meeting for the implementation of various upgrades and developments to the roads and sidewalks as the initial phase of a longer term development of the precinct.
Rivertown Precinct is situated in central eThekwini between the beach front and the International Convention Centre Complex. It is home to a wide range of businesses from traditional retail, warehousing, motor repairs, sales and supplies to health, lifestyle and creative businesses in a dynamic setting.
eThekwini has an extensive urban regeneration plan that forms part of the Integrated Development Plan for eThekwini to be the most liveable city by 2025. eThekwini has identified a number of "precincts" within the city as a whole and these require different upgrades or development. The Rivertown precinct upgrades were due for implementation, and prior to the breaking of ground by the appointed contractors eThekwini held a public information meeting to inform all stakeholders of the project and the proposed implementation.
A public information meeting was held on 27 May at the Durban Exhibition Centre and was open to all stakeholders, interested and affected parties.
