Design of Public Spaces

Purpose The Design of Public Spaces will focus on removing barriers in two areas: 1 . Public spaces, and 2 . Buildings Scope Enhancements   to   accessibility   in   buildings   will   happen   at   a   later   date   through   Ontario’s   Building   Code,   which   governs   any   new construction   or   renovations   in   buildings.      The   Standard   for   the   Design   of   Public   Spaces   only   applies   to   new   construction   and   major changes to existing features that are made on or after January 1, 2017, and covers the following areas: Recreational trails/beach access routes Outdoor public eating areas like rest stops or picnic areas Outdoor play spaces, like playgrounds in provincial parks and local communities Outdoor paths of travel, like sidewalks, ramps, stairs, curb ramps, rest areas and accessible pedestrian signals Accessible parking (on and off street) Service-related elements like service counters, fixed queuing lines and waiting areas Maintenance and restoration of public spaces. Requirements All   organizations   with   accessibility   plan   requirements   must   make   sure   that   their   multi-year   accessibility   plan   outlines   how   these requirements under the regulation will be met. Who Must Comply (Owner or Lease-Holder)? The   standard   states   that   the   organization   that   must   comply   with   the   requirements   is   the   one   that   has   authority   or   approval   to   build   on or   make   planned   significant   alterations   to   the   public   space,   but   not   necessarily   an   organization   that   may   have   approved   the construction or otherwise have an interest in the property. Policy and Plans We   have   established   and   implemented   a   Premises   Accessibility   Standards   Checklist   to   ensure   accessibility   for   persons   with   any physical, sensory, learning, developmental and/or mental health disabilities that cover the following areas: An   annual   inspection   will   be   conducted   and   areas   that   we   have   a   direct   control   over,   and   without   incurring   substantial   costs   will   be repaired and/or retrofitted to accommodate persons with disabilities.
