“I’m a home owner and business owner in Fourways and admire the work Future City Fourways is doing in cleaning up the area for our community. It’s easy for us all to stand on the side lines and complain about everything without doing something about it. Sponsoring this anti-grime, anti-crime programme is my way of doing something about the urban decay and crime,” says Michael Hattingh, owner of Ultra Sound & Vision located in Pearls of Fourways Shopping Centre, Pineslopes.
It was Future City’s clean up of the open land sandwiched between Fourways Crossing Shopping Centre and Witkoppen Road, and which abuts Pearls of Fourways, in March 2017 that convinced Michael to make financial commitments to Future City’s programme in Fourways’ CBD.
“I’ve had two break-ins over the past few years and we are pretty sure the risk came from that open piece of land that Future City cleared up and fenced for us.”
The restoration of that erf was facilitated by Future City with the invaluable and hands on assistance of ward councillor Candice James, officials from the City of Johannesburg and management from Fourways Crossing Shopping Centre, the latter also being a sponsor of Future City.
