Accessible Parking in Accessible Communities(APAC) Project

About the Project APAC

The Richmond Centre for Disability (RCD) is implementing a new project, in partnership with Social Planning and Research Council of British Columbia (SPARC), called “Accessible Parking in Accessible Communities”, funded by the BC Provincial Government, through Disability Alliance BC.

The key focus is to look at potential models to strengthen community efforts around the enforcement of the use of designated accessible parking; the mainstay is GIS technology, which is supported, guided and subsequently analyzed by SPARC. We also intend to collect information on potential instances of misuse and abuse, such as “Hot Spots” with a goal to strengthen current enforcement efforts.
