Dear Property and Business Owners (Parow Industria Improvement District / CID)               7th September 2017


  1. Annual General Meeting & Membership to the CID

The Annual General Meeting is scheduled for Thursday 7th December 2017 at 16:00 in the Board Room, Sales Office, (CFW Industries) 1a Parin Road, Parow Industria.  Kindly diarize this.  A notice and agenda will follow shortly with advertisements placed in two local newspapers.  At the AGM the CID will provide a detailed report of activities during the last financial year 2016/17 in addition to the plans for 2017/18.  All relevant documentation is due to be placed on the CID’s website shortly . The CID appeals to property owners to apply in writing to the CID for membership.  Membership forms are available on the CID’s website or from the CID office (contact Glynis or Sanchia on 021 932-4799).  Membership (at no cost) is open to all the property owners in the Parow Industria CID precinct, who are encouraged to apply for this so that they can exercise their rights to influence the business of the CID.  Membership cannot be denied and the property owner is then entitled to attend, participate and vote at the members meetings held under the auspices of the Companies Act.  Should a member be unable to attend they may give another individual their proxy to attend and vote on their behalf. Non-members may attend and participate but cannot vote and as such may thus have limited influence on the CID activities.

  1. Appeal from Fire Services


A few months ago CCT Fire Services serviced all fire hydrants in the Parow Industria CID area.  They recently checked these and have reported to the CID office that many of these have again been damaged by large trucks parking on verges.  We make an urgent appeal to business owners to ensure that trucks do not park on verges or illegally and that trailers are not left parked in traffic lanes thereby causing obstruction and traffic congestion.


  1. Services from CCT (City of Cape Town)


There has been much concern raised by CID’s at forum meetings held for all CID Managers and Chairpersons.  The City is now moving towards Area Based Management with the appointment of a Mini-mayor over each area.  CID’s have been divided into these areas.  The process is in an advanced stage and should be implemented soon with the appointments for these positions currently receiving attention.   The concerns surrounding service delivery were again discussed at a recent forum meeting and each CID has compiled a presentation that has already been sent to the City and is due to be presented at a workshop with an Executive Mayoral Committee Member on 12th September 2017.


  1. Proposed Evacuation exercise for 2018


Kindly advise the CID office if there are any companies who may be willing to participate in an evacuation exercise during the first half of 2018 which would incorporate the CID and other relevant role-players for example, CCT Disaster Risk Management, EMS, Fire Services, Traffic Services etc
