A safer and more welcoming place for everyone
The measure of an inclusive city is how safe and welcomed every resident feels - and we know that we can make Victoria a more welcoming city.
RAMP UP ACCESSIBILITY EFFORTS
We support the Accessibility Working Group - we need to listen to people facing accessibility issues to guide us in redesigning our infrastructure with everyone in mind. The city has made lots of mistakes in designing infrastructure and services without accessibility in mind, and we need to make fixing those issues a priority. Moving forward, we would like to bring in higher standards for accessibility in new projects, and explore incentives for owners of older buildings to make renovations (e.g. railings, ramps and elevators) that improve accessibility and allow seniors to age in place.
