Bold Idea: Shahid Solomon presented on the Voortrekker Corridor Project, which seeks to engaged the public in a vision process to improve the economic attractiveness and residential conditions of the area around Voortrekker Road Corridor and the Bellville node. It is a bold idea because it requires considerable investor buy in and support from the community and plans to be one of Cape Town's most extensive and imaginative public engagement processes ever.

Speaker: Shahid Solomon.
