Terrace Measures Up in Accessibility

Story

Terrace received $20,000 from Measuring Up. Funds were used to hire a coordinator and survey the community regarding accessibility and inclusion. Also, community leaders took part in an awareness-raising disabilities access tour. Local accessibility improvements included weight room modifications at the Terrace Aquatic Centre; modifications to concrete approaches to Skeena Bridge and curb cuts at a major intersection; installation of an automatic door at a Tim Horton's location; and accessibility modifications to public washrooms at Skeena Mall.


    

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.
