Creating Inclusive Spaces and Accessibility Guidelines for the Public Right-of-Way

Broadcast Date: 
Wednesday, January 10, 2024

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, and Accessibility Specialist, Joseph Prochilo, as they explore 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 cities and towns.

Founded in 2004, Direct Access is a team of people with disabilities working locally and internationally to improve accessibility.
