HRA CommUNITY Brief August 2019
We continue to hear residents ask, ‘What value is there in supporting the Hilton Ratepayers Association?’ This is exciting because it illustrates a growing interest in the Hilton Ratepayers Association as the need for us to be a strong player representing and working for our CommUNITY is increasingly necessary. We work hard on a range of key focus points and will continue to inform our Hilton Residents what the Hilton Ratepayer’s Association (HRA) is, why it exists, what it does, what we have achieved etc. Here goes, pour your coffee and settle in for a fact-filled read!
What is the HRA?
What areas is the HRA active in?
What has the HRA achieved recently?
What is on our ‘to do list’?
URBAN IMPROVEMENT DISTRICT (UID)
One of the main projects for the forthcoming year will be to assist in the creation of an UID in Hilton. Set out below is a brief outline of what this is and involves. There will be further communication as this project evolves as it will require the support of the whole community.
What does a UID provide for?
There are a number of UID's Functioning in the country. Closer to home they exist in the Umhlanga area and Southbroom. They are also well established in Cape Town where they go under the name of Business Improvement Districts. (BID's)
Benefits are considerable. Reduction of crime, better property values resulting from neater and crime free neighborhoods.
Further communication will be forthcoming as this matter progresses. In the interim interested persons can google BID's and UID's
It is sincerely hoped that this newsletter has helped more people understand how hard the HRA Committee works behind the scenes, for ALL Hiltonians. We cannot do it alone! Sadly, we currently have only about 190 contributing households out of 3000+ households. This is your town, the more people who get involved in dealing with CommUNITY issues the more we can do together to improve our special place on the hill!
