The ECID was established in terms of the Gauteng City Improvement Districts Act No.12 of 1997 by property owners in the CID area. The necessity for an initiative to improve Edenvale was recognized several years ago by concerned property and business owners within the Edenvale central business district, who were growing increasingly concerned by the slow but definite degeneration of the area.

The Edenvale City Improve District NPC is a non-profit company (NPC) that property owners and business owners within the CBD may join. Membership of the NPC is optional but allows members voting rights at general meetings of ECID, which obviously means having a say in how the CID is run. The ECID levy is compulsory in terms of the Act. The offices are situated at Shop No 12, Eden Place, 41 Van Riebeeck Avenue, Edenvale specifically to serve the property owners, businesses and residents within the improvement district but it also attempts to serve all stakeholders within the greater Edenvale area and surrounding communities. The CID area stretches from Horwood Street to 7th Street and covers 7th Avenue, 8th Avenue, van Riebeeck Avenue, 10th Avenue and Voortrekker Avenue.

ECID is the first public/private partnership within Ekurhuleni. We have a Board of Directors elected by the members who serve on the board free of charge. The current Chairman of the Board is Dr Paolo Agostinetto. A manager was appointed by the directors of the ECID NPC in 2013 to manage the area and start the rehabilitation process. This process is aimed at returning the CBD to a safe, clean, pleasant and viable business destination for the surrounding communities that it served in the past and intends serving again in the future. In the short time since the management company has been in place several notable improvements have already been achieved in the area, like a marked reduction in litter, repainting of road markings, removal of weeds on the pavements, refurbishment of the fountain and, with the assistance of the EMPD and SAPS, some significant crime related successes have been achieved.

ECID also finances two mobile wardens who patrol the area and report on crime and by-law transgressions, which in turn are reported to the appropriate authorities for action and such action is monitored by the management company.
