Cape Town has Positive Response to Renaming Process

 


Recent Company News

"Capetonians are continuing to respond very positively to the second stage of the City’s dialogue with its residents on the renaming of local streets, public places, natural areas and Council-owned buildings, facilities and artefacts", says the convener of the process, Councillor Owen Kinahan.

Full page advertisements in English, Afrikaans and Xhosa were carried in community newspapers last week. In addition, full details in these three languages are carried on the home page of the City’s website, www.capetown.gov.za under the headline “Renaming” which is third from the top under the “Quick Links” (www.capetown.gov.za/renaming ).

“Respondents can utilise the City website to give us their input or by completing the forms which are available in English Afrikaans and Xhosa at 23 sub-council offices across the city”, Kinahan said.

Those wishing to post the forms should address them to: Renaming, P.O. Box 16548, Vlaeberg 8018 or e‑mail them to renaming@capetown.gov.za. They can also be faxed to 021 487 2255.

Kinahan said that although the general policy was only to consider the names of deceased people, the City’s policy guidelines made it possible to “honour and commemorate noteworthy persons associated with the City of Cape Town” (Guidelines for name selection, 2.2.4 (a)). This had been the case with three of the proposed changes in favour of Nelson Mandela, Adam Small and Phillip Kgosana. All City policies can be accessed on the website on the left of the page under "Quick Links": http://www.capetown.gov.za/policies/default.asp

The original 236 proposals have been reduced by the panel to 39:
