Every Neighbourhood for Everyone means that all people can safely move around all parts of the city. This includes folks with disabilities, seniors, and people using baby strollers. As a city, we need to increase accessibility to make travel within Vancouver safer and easier for everyone.
HOW ONECITY WILL IMPROVE ACCESSIBILITY:
- Create an Office of Accessibility that works across all city departments to ensure access is top of mind, and rooted in the belief that accessibility is a human right and an issue of justice.
- An Accessibility Audit to be done in the first year on the newly-elected Council and remaining years will be used to implement its recommendations.
- Increase the City budget for curb cuts throughout the city and press for all new sidewalks in commercial areas to be widened.
