The Stellenbosch Municipality in the Western Cape Province, South Africa, has implemented a novel approach to providing housing – the Integrated Residential Development Program – a multi-phase initiative to develop economically integrated communities. This project documented perspectives of the program, collecting narratives and employing a photo-elicitation strategy to understand the views of municipal officials, program beneficiaries, and neighboring community residents. Collected data reveal that the approach has potential, but still needs to address shared concerns of establishing safety measures, offering effective consumer education, and defining roles and responsibilities. We suggest engaging the community with small projects, youth involvement, and further municipal collaboration.
