The city has launched a survey for people with a disability, or their advocates, as part of a plan to set priorities for accessibility planning in the city.
People who live in Peterborough, or who work in or visit the city, are asked to share their experiences with accessibility through the online survey at http://www.peterborough.ca/AccessibilityPlanSurvey.
The deadline to take part in the survey is 4:30 p.m. Aug. 25.
The survey aims to give city officials a better understanding of the experiences of residents and visitors with disabilities who use city goods, services and facilities, according to a release from the city, with the aim of creating a more inclusive community.
Anyone needing help completing the survey or requiring an alternative format can call the city’s accessibility office at 705-742-7777 ext. 1630 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
After the survey is completed, the city plans to post a summary of the survey results on the city’s website.
The results will also go to the city’s accessibility advisory committee.
The city’s Accessibility Plan will then be updated and posted to http://www.peterborough.ca/accessibility to keep the city in compliance with the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act.
