Overstand Municiipality is on a drive to install proper signage in each village (Betty's Bay; Pringle Bay; Rooiels and Kleinmond) to ensure tourists and visitors are educated about the area they visit.
At the OM meeting held in Kleinmond last week, OM requested:
1. an audit of hotspots where tourists go and the signage there.
2. A Unified look between all villages.
There was a strong consensus for a Cape Nature type style and colour for signs throughout the conservancy region covered by OM.
Submissions need to be made within a month so that the tourism season would be enhanced by prompt remediation.
It appears that budgets for these improvements would be added to the IDP.
Rooiels will be spelled as one word in the final version. Below that you can download the Files with kind of information that will be included -
Below you can download the kind of information to be included - and the proposed signs for the 4 villages in the KBR Transition zone
Please send any suggestions you may have to firstname.lastname@example.org, and, if viable, will be added to the report being sent to OM.
Three Themes are envisaged for the Educational Boards for Rooiels. The idea is to have some boards in the CBD and some at the Slipway.
Biodiversity & Conservation
The History of Rooiels & Fauna, marine & sea life
A separate poster on Baboon Education (similar to the one currently in Pringle Bay opposite Lemon & Lime, relating to baboons) will be a stand-alone.
These are the Feedback from the Ward Committee Meetings and other related matters. They are lodged in Date order going backwards.
