Revelstoke Measures Up in Accessibility

Story

Revelstoke received $15,000 from Measuring Up. Funds were used to conduct a community survey and to improve access to public buildings. Automatic doors were installed or upgraded at the city's Court House, Museum and Forum, and new signage was provided to indicate access points. In addition, the curb outside a local medical clinic was ground down to improve wheelchair access from street level parking.


 

Measuring Up helps communities assess and improve how accessible and inclusive they are for people with disabilities, seniors and others with similar needs. The program includes a fund, established by the Province of British Columbia, which offers grants to communities to complete accessibility-related projects.
