Official unveiling of the Princess Vlei People’s Plan/ local Forum tries to disrupt proceedings

The official Presentation and recent Unveiling of the Princess Vlei People’s Plan held at the Bottom Road Sanctuary in Zeekoevlei was an overwhelming success.

CAMPS wishes to thank all those who attended the Unveiling of The People’s Plan, it was a very engaging and enjoyable morning. A special thank you to the Khoisan leaders for the enriching opening ceremony and also for your support. It was truly heartening to witness such interest and commitment to the upliftment of the local community and beautification of our environment.

CAMPS: This work has come through many years of personal investment and engagement with local stakeholders and we have committed ourselves to ongoing communication and dialogue with the community in order to ensure we serve their interests. We will continue to act in good faith and to collaborate with others who do the same.
Thank you once again to all who attended; warm wishes and stay in touch. We will be updating you all soon on the next steps in realising a collective vision for a beautiful, useful and productive Princess Vlei.

Now that you’ve all seen the proposal for Princess Vlei, I’d like to know what your thoughts are about it. I believe it is a brilliant initiative for the Southern Suburbs. This is something that will uplift the community as a whole.

Petitions have been sent out for people to sign. Let me know if you’d like copies to get more signatures. The more the merrier smile emoticon

Job Creation is a top priority and this project will definitely help sustain people are who skilled and semi-skilled.

This proposal is a first of its kind in South Africa and although it is only a concept for now, I would love for our community to come together and help realize this plan with me.

Concepts bring investors, tourists, local and national people to the space because it is different and unique. People are evolving, so must our ideology.
Otherwise we will fail with any type of plan, but not a concept, because it has an attraction of something different.

Help us materialize this for you the community.

Disruptions

It was truly heartening to witness such interest and commitment to the upliftment of the local community and beautification of our environment.
We acknowledge attempts by some attendees to derail the proceedings. While we are happy to engage with those who have conflicting views, or have critiques to share, we do not appreciate the disrespect shown not to us but to our invited guests who took the time to attend the Unveiling. This we cannot accept and we condemn in the strongest terms. As one attendee noted, this was not the occasion to raise personal vendettas or use cheap tactics to discredit the CAMPS proposal. We know our work has come through many years of personal investment and engagement with local stakeholders and we have committed ourselves to ongoing communication and dialogue with the community in order to ensure we serve their interests. We will continue to act in good faith and to collaborate with others who do the same.
