Who We Are
The Saxonwold and Parkwood Residents Association ("SAPRA") is a non profit organisation that is run by, and seeks to advance the interests of the residents of the two suburbs.
1. Our Function
Our function is to assist with the problems of residents which generally relate to the monitoring and enforcement of legal norms and standards, such as ensuring adherence to building regulations (by-laws and heritage), requiring advertisers to comply with the by-laws and for safe and clean parks.
2. Our Approach
SAPRA adopts a pro-active approach and will tackle challenges of all sizes – from street cleaning right up to participating and influencing the layout of the proposed Bus Rapid Transport (BRT) in our suburbs.
3. Our Committee
All of our committee members, other than the secretary, are volunteers. Our local councillor and other civic leaders sit on the committee and facilitate communication with the City.
