you’ve chosen your café, now choose your hood!

name your hood will officially launch on 30th june 2011. participants will be able to submit names from 4th july 2011, as detailed below:

name your hood is about reclaiming cape town. it’s about igniting community pride. it’s about creating a legible city. it’s about giving you a voice in the places that really matter – where you live, work and play.

click on one of the neighbourhoods available for naming.

dive into your hood with google maps or stroll its virtual streets with google street view. explore the buildings, businesses and interesting characters that create the unique flavour of each hood. discover a world of fascinating cultural, geographic and historic secrets.

register to offer a creative name of your own, and motivate your suggestion. or check out what others in your community have come up with and vote for them.

after a three-week naming period all hood name suggestions will be put before a panel of architects, planners, musicians, local celebrities and historians. this panel will create a shortlist of the best names chosen for each hood.

from this shortlist the best name for each hood will then be decided by public vote.

with cape town’s city centre as its starting point name your hood will be opening two or three hoods at a time for naming. the name your hood campaign aims to roll out into all the hoods within sight of table mountain over time…
