ZPAAC workshopped a wishlist of projects at a meeting on 19 January 2018.

These projects have now been categorised in terms of effort (1,2,3) and money (A,B,C) required and can be found in this document: Dream_Zandvlei_projects_categorised_3aug18

In due course it will be listed on this page too.

1 = immediately doable
2 = needs a bit of permission, funding etc
3 = needs a huge rethink, urban planning and/or management models
Money needed
A = can be done with little to no money
B = can be done with a reasonable amount of money, crowd-sourced or local government funding R200 k – R1 million
C = needs a lot of money > R1 million

1A Marketing programme for students and learners, learn, understand, take ownership of this area.
1A Look at what is already happening, working with that rather than designing something new
(perform an audit of current activities)
1A Investors look at maximizing profit at the exclusion of the people who live here, so need to manage that, keep the people and council involved.
