SEA VISTA TO ST FRANCIS Bay CBD PEDESTRIAN PATHWAY – NOW UNDER CONSTRUCTION

This project has been funded by the Kouga Wind Farm Community Development Trust and project managed by the St Francis Property Owners.  All relevant contracts for this project have been awarded and construction of the pedestrian pathway to provide a safe and direct route for our Sea Vista residents between Sea Vista and the St Francis Bay CBD is well underway.  The concrete pathway will be lit up at night and  protected by CCTV camera surveillance.  The servitude in which the pathway is being constructed will be landscaped, and once completed it will be maintained by the Kouga Municipality.

The project is also providing valuable experiential traning for our appointed Technical Assistant, Lesedi Marota who is working towards his National Diploma in Civil Engineering at NMU and employment for many local workers.

A total of 25 beautifully hand crafted mosaics have been created by the Ocean Smile team of volunteers, expertly trained and mentored by Burcu  Cunneen and Pippa Smith. These mosaics were inspired by artworks submitted by our local school children depicting what they thought best reflected their culture and their environment. The mosaics are to be inlaid into the concrete pathway at intervals for the enjoyment of all who walk along it.

GEORGE ROAD CAR PARK

The reconstruction and paving of the George Road Car Park is underway. This project aimed at restoring the access to the popular Hobie Beach has been funded by residents of George Road and project managed by the St Francis Property Owners.  Liege and George roads leading to the car park were recently slurried by the Municipality. Proper provision has been made for an emergency vehicle access to the beach at this point.
