A Focus on BIDs/CIDs.

The second Improvement District in Sandton became operational in mid-November last year. The ‘Sandton Business Improvement District’ (SBID) covers the commercial area of Sandton bounded by Rivonia Road, Sandton and Grayston Drives. Anyone passing through the area can’t help but notice the smartly uniformed and highly visible safety and security officers and cleaning and maintenance personnel as well as a noticeably cleaner environment than previously. The older Sandton Improvement District, the ‘Sandton City Management District’ operates around the predominantly retail area in which Sandton City, Sandton Square, the Sandton Convention Centre and a number of hotels and office buildings are located. Between the two Improvement Districts some 38 safety and security officers (16 on mountain bikes), four rapid response vehicles with six armed officers and 24 cleaning and maintenance workers operate daily. In addition 16 “Ambassadors” attached to the hotels, convention centre and certain buildings dressed in complementary uniforms “bulk up” visible physical presence A smaller crew operate at night.
