“An ant on its feet can do more than an elephant lying down”.

Our Story 

“We make a difference” – it’s as straightforward as that.

The Arcadia CID (also referred to as the CID) was established after raising concerns about urban decay, increased crime and lack of cleanliness. After achieving a remarkable 80% approval of property owners in the area, Arcadia CID was approved by a full council on 29 May 2002 and began providing services on 1 June 2002.


We focus on two objectives – keeping the streets clean and safe. We want to create a space that allow visitors, tourists, shoppers, workers, residents and businesses to enjoy the area without being concerned about safety. We do this by providing public space management solutions that are a top-up service in conjunction with the City of Tshwane and through work with stakeholders such as the South African Police Service. 


Transform the urban environment of Arcadia and greater Tshwane into a space where people can work, play, stay and prosper.
