The City of Regina seeks public feedback as it creates its first-ever Accessibility Plan.
The plan aims to remove barriers to access to City spaces, programs, and services and ensure that all residents can participate equally and fully in community life.
“To ensure that the Plan reflects the diverse needs and experiences of all people living, working, and playing in Regina, the City is asking community members to share their input on what an accessible Regina looks like,” the City said in a media release.
The plan aims to feature the voices of mainly those with disabilities, older adults, and caregivers, as well as support and advocacy organizations, while also hearing from a wide range of community members about their experiences with accessibility.
“Public input will directly inform the Accessibility Plan, including priorities and actions the City can take to remove barriers to access in areas such as municipal transportation, employment, communication, technology, built environment, and more.”
There will be several ways for the public to provide input until the June 26 deadline.
Residents can complete a short online survey, attend one of the following pop-up events at Sandra Schmirler Leisure Centre on June 7, Regina Treaty/Status Indian Services on June 8, and OUT in the Park in Wascana Park on June 10.
The City adds that residents can learn more about how to participate by visiting Regina.ca/accessibility.
