Enviro-Forum unveils rejuvenation plans for Phoenix
​Officials braved the sweltering heat to conduct a
walkabout to identify problem areas in the Phoenix
Central Business District.
THE Phoenix Enviro-Forum has developed plans to rejuvenate and cleanup the Phoenix Central Business District. This comes after a successful planning session and site visits to various areas in Phoenix on 6 March.

The targeted areas included Parthenon Street, Acropolis Mall and the Raza Plaza. These areas all house informal traders, some of which are currently not complying with City by-laws and regulations. Senior Environmental Health Practitioner Sholona Mahabeer said there is a need to clean-up Phoenix. “We are starting our campaigns in these pocketed areas as we want to ensure that business owners also get involved by adopting the area.”

Chairperson of the Phoenix Enviro-Forum Sharen Kistnasamy said often the team conducts major clean-ups and the next morning the area is back to its dilapidated state. “We appeal to the community and informal traders to always clean up after themselves and ensure that they have a sense of civic pride.” She added that illegal dumping is a major concern.  The team will be conducting blitz activities and awareness and educational campaigns throughout the year.
