Kentville Accessibility Committee
The Town of Kentville wants to become a more accessible and inclusive place for everyone to live, learn, play, and work.
reachAbility Association has partnered with houdinidesign ARCHITECTS to create an accessibility action plan that will align Kentville with the province’s Access by Design 2030: Achieving an Accessible Nova Scotia plan.
Whether you identify as a person with a disability or love someone who does, you can help shape the town’s action plan. There’s different ways to participate, so choose the way(s) that’s right for you, and share you stories, experiences, and ideas that will get Kentville Moving Accessibility Forward.
