This project is part of the 2020 Multi Use Pathway (MUP) Renewal Program. The goal is to rehabilitate and upgrade 5 existing pathways to current MUP standards.

The scope of this project is to widen the Robinson pathway, located in the south end of Sandy Hill, to 3.0m, repave and upgrade surface and review and upgrade existing safety features (lighting, railings).

Due to several existing site constraints, the City is prohibited from making modifications to the slope of a portion of the MUP to meet the 5% slope required by the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (2005). While compliance with the slope requirement of the AODA is not practicable, the City is considering installing rest areas along the steep portion of the pathway to accommodate accessibility needs.

The installation of rest areas will inevitably make the slope of the pathway steeper. The City consulted on this item with its Accessibility Advisory Committee in November 2021, and the Committee preferred no rest areas to keep the slope as low as possible.

However, to meet its consultation requirements under the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (2005), the City is seeking feedback from persons with disabilities and the public on the design and placement of rest areas along this pathway.

Please review the attached document for more information on the project and the three options. Then, complete the survey to give your feedback!
