Accessibility Plan of Hernani´s municipallity went out to tender last September 2018. The plan must analyse several items placed in sidewalks, urban spaces and pedestrian pathways, public buildings and everything related with accessibility in the fields of transportation, signposting and communication.
Suma USC won the contest. We proposed the use of GIS analysis tools and data colletion in field operations with the aim to scan the area. After evaluating all data taken and put together the conclutions on a document, a participatory process will be taken place in Hernani for priorising improvement actions in public spaces and elaborating the final Step Plan.
The main goal of the Plan is to improve the quality of life of locals and suggest a set of real and factible measures in the time frame defined by the Plan. The work we will conduct together with the citizenship and city council seeks to identify black spots in the city and raise awareness of the problems that some collectives suffer daily.
Currently, Suma USC is working on data field colletion and analysing the municipality with the intent of schedule the first civic participation session soon.
