“Sound and sustainable public spaces build stronger communities in which citizens highlight local assets, spur rejuvenation and serve common needs” - Project For Public Spaces.
The Johannesburg City Improvement District (CID) Forum represents and promotes Sustainable Place Management and Urban Management institutions, initiatives and individuals throughout Johannesburg.
The CID Forum has been established as a platform from which City Improvement Districts in Johannesburg can share information, follow international trends and keep track of issues that have an impact on City Improvement Districts as a collective.
Each City Improvement District is unique but collectively they are all affected by the decisions of Council and the public sector.
