Ekurhuleni residents are urged to voice concerns regarding the kind of place they would like to live, play, work and invest in, in the next 40yrs.
The City of Ekurhuleni will hold the second round of public participation meetings where inputs can be made to its Growth and Development Strategy (GDS) 2055 document.
According to Justice Mohale, Ekurhuleni spokesman, the municipality held extensive public consultation sessions covering a wide range of stakeholders from the citizenry, businesses, NGO, civic organisations, and employees in May when various scenarios for the future of the City of Ekurhuleni were discussed.
Mohale says the metro is holding a second round of discussions to make sure all its stakeholders get to put their views forward before the GDS 2055 is finalised.
Central to the GDS 2055 public participation process are insights and proposals on critical elements that form the basis for Ekurhuleni’s long-term plan for service delivery for the next 40 years, which are Social Development and Cohesion, Climate Change and Environmental Stability, Economic Growth and Employment, Urban Planning and Built Environment, Transport and Logistics and City Governance and Financial Stability.
The finalised document will serve as a roadmap for the transformation of Ekurhuleni based on the priorities identified during the stakeholder consultation sessions and also taking into account global, national and provincial trends.
On Friday, June 29 the programme gears up to allow youth to also have a say in what is billed as the GDS Youth Summit.
The meeting will be held at the Germiston Civic Centre Banqueting Hall from 12pm to 3pm.
