The Village of Cumberland is celebrating its move to make the community more accessible and inclusive for everyone on Access Awareness Day, June 4.
At 10 a.m. on Saturday, June 4, Cumberland Mayor Leslie Baird, Councillors Jesse Ketler and Roger Kishi will join Cumberland’s Accessibility Committee on a tour of the Village using wheelchairs, walkers and vision loss simulators. The group will head to the Cumberland Village Market at Village Square to celebrate the construction of a new concrete pathway to the accessible picnic table at that location.
This summer and fall, the Village’s Accessibility Committee will be working with SPARC BC to prepare an action plan to implement accessibility improvements in its parks and public facilities. The Committee will look at on-street parking spaces and will develop a guide to encourage and support local businesses and owners of commercial buildings to make accessibility improvements.
The Accessibility Committee asks you to think about what you can do to make Cumberland as accessible as possible and to help spread the word about the needs of those with activity limitations.
