Accessibility is a rapidly growing topic on municipality agendas as technology and new ideas emerge. Moreover, there are new guidelines under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the Architectural Barriers Act (ABA) that address access to sidewalks and streets, crosswalks, curb ramps, pedestrian signals, on-street parking, and other components of public right-of-way.
Join Steven Mifsud, profoundly deaf since birth, as he explores how municipalities can innovate beyond the ADA to create inclusive spaces and details the new Public-Right-of-Way Accessibility Guidelines and what they mean to the process of creating inclusive and accessible cities and towns.
