St. John's releases feedback on Accessibility Plan

The City of St. John’s has released a summary of feedback received on the development of an Accessibility Plan.

The Accessibility Plan will focus on actions to improve accessibility and remove barriers within the city.

Highlights include concerns about accessible parking and infrastructure, barriers related to sidewalks, the importance of ensuring the availability of alternate accessible routes in construction zones and comments related to needing more inclusion workers for City programs and more flexibility in programming.

Feedback also included additional or improved accessible measures and equipment are needed in parks, playgrounds, City owned housing and facilities, such as accessible public washrooms and automatic doors. Ideas provided around improving the accessibility of public transit and consulting with persons with disabilities or subject matter experts in all phases of a project to ensure current barriers are addressed and no new barriers are created.
