Creating a Better Community

About the Muizenberg Improvement District

Muizenberg is a place of connection and re-connection, where river meets ocean, and ocean meets mountain. People from all background live, play and work alongside each other. It is South Africa’s most diverse and eclectic coastal town.

The Muizenberg Improvement District led by a board of volunteers who work hard to look after it, and to keep it special.

Simon Roberts,
MID Chairperson


Our mission and vision

Our mission
The MID’s mission is to go about seeing urban upliftment of the Muizenberg area in the pursuit of the vision, through the diligent application of best-practice urban management and improvement, community engagement, and stakeholder management.

Our vision
Muizenberg isn’t just the historic village, and Surfer’s Corner. It is a wide-reaching area, encompassing many people. Our vision is to make Muizenberg safe for all, keep it special and welcoming to tourists and locals alike. It should remain a place where anyone and everyone can enjoy the beauty of our area and the vibrance of a diverse community. After more than 20 years of operation at this current size, the Muizenberg Improvement District (MID) board believes that in order to work towards the vision, we need professionalism the organisation and move away from the “politics” which have beset the organisation for years.

Our values

The MID organization will go about its business in a way that aligns with the values below.

EXCELLENCE – we do what we commit to do, and we do it well. We leave things better than we find them. We show tenacity and determination in the pursuit of our mission.

CLARITY – we are crystal clear in our communications and transparent with our activities and intentions. We make decisions based on factual input. We aim to be worthy of the trust placed in us by the community.

HEART – we see the humanity in everyone, we slow down to listen, and we assume the best of people’s intent. We build, mend, and keep strong relationships. We distinguish between the actions and the actor disagreements.

CREATIVITY – we are creative when we need to be, we think out the box. We influence with creativity. We believe that the whole is greater than the sum of the parts. We reframe problems to come up with solutions.

CONNECTEDNESS – we co-operate and collaborate, because we understand that we are all connected in some way. We look at the big picture but focus on what we can control. We listen to each other and consider each other’s points of view.
