Disability:  A New City Model

It is necessary that the authorities begin to think about the city, not for ordinary people, but for all in general, including the one who moves in a wheelchair, the blind, the deaf, Soto said.

Accessibility (Ramps and platforms).

In this sense, it should be proposed to rebuild all access ramps that were made in the center of the city, to make them functional regarding the regulations for this justification.

Also, carry out the uniformity of the platforms in terms of slabs and unevenness, according to the topography of the land, with special priority in the sections of avenues 0 to 10, between diagonal where ramp should be built. Accessibility to shopping centers and government buildings, education and health, sound and tactile signals for the blind.

On the areas of assignment, developers must enable them for recreation and provide them for the entire population, not for a few.

Transport

The preparation of a road and transport plan should be initiated in the short term, with a design that involves the population in situations of disability and that has coverage throughout the city, not as it now only reaches certain sectors.

The Patios

That the buses are enabled for the boarding of people in wheelchairs, (wheelchair accessible van can help this) and with access ramps. Demarcate in the center of the city, in strategic places, parking of vehicles driven by people with disabilities.

Priority in areas for the parking of this population. Today, no parking in the city has private spaces for parking and boarding for people in wheelchairs.

Environment

Elimination of visual contamination of the urban landscape. That the wiring of public services be underground and not air, do not allow propaganda in parades or posts.

Withdrawal of the fences and warnings that the informal and formal commerce installs in the terraces and trees of the city. Establish a public policy for the care and conservation of the city’s trees.
