Peachland’s Accessibility Advisory Committee Members Sought
– Peachland Council is seeking volunteers to sit on its new Accessibility Advisory Committee. The committee will assist Council in developing an Accessibility Plan for Peachland, working to identify and remove barriers in the District of Peachland.
With the guiding principles of inclusion, adaptability, diversity, collaboration, self-determination and universal design in mind, the committee will act as an ongoing advisory board of Council, fulfilling the goals of BC’s Accessibility Act. A key role of the committee is to provide advice on mechanisms for the District to receive public feedback on accessibility.
The Accessibility Advisory Committee will have a minimum of five and a maximum of seven members. Councillors Terry Condon and Randey Brophy have been appointed as the two Peachland Council representatives and Council will appoint committee members based on their experience and credentials, hoping for representation from people with disabilities, people who work with, or care for, people with disabilities, people who represent the diversity of people with disabilities, indigenous people and people who reflect the diversity of persons in BC.
