Committee to host public meeting on residential accessible parking options
February 1, 2016 -
Kingston residents are invited to a public meeting to offer input on options for accessible parking in residential neighbourhoods on Thursday, Feb. 4. It is being hosted by the municipal accessibility advisory committee in the INVISTA Centre, Room A/B, 1350 Gardiners Road, starting at 1 p.m.
"More and more residents are facing accessibility-related challenges and require support in order to remain in their homes. Some residents with disabilities have great difficulty accommodating access buses or taxis, and face great difficulty parking near their homes," says Julie Salter-Keane, manager, community projects.
Come offer input on options for residential accessible parking spaces and single front-yard parking pads.
Those wishing to speak are asked to register at the welcome table before the start of the meeting. Speakers will be chosen in random order. Each speaker will be allowed a maximum of five minutes to make his/her presentation. If you are not able to attend in person, written submissions can sent to Heather Woodland, Committee Clerk at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The agenda and other materials are posted on the meeting's Feb. 4 listing on the City's calendar at www.CityofKingston.ca/calendar.
