Council Approves Argyle Accessibility Plan

The Municipality of the District of Argyle is excited to announce the approval of their "Access by Design" Accessibility Plan.

The Plan was developed by members of the Argyle Accessibility Advisory Committee and provides Council with a vision and direction in becoming a place to live where programs, services and facilities are barrier-free by 2030, where possible, in accordance to the Nova Scotia Accessibility Act.

This committee was composed of a member of the municipal council, municipal staff and members of the public, half of which have a disability.

The mandate of this committee was to " ...provide advice to Council on identifying, preventing, and eliminating of barriers to people with disabilities in municipal programs, services, initiatives and facilities.”

We are proud and excited to begin this work.
