Mobility/Accessibility Master Plan

Mobility Accessibility Master Plan logo

The City of Lethbridge is currently developing a Mobility/Accessibility Master Plan that will provide direction to new developments, redevelopments, and planning initiatives to ensure equal access within the physical environment is provided to all residents of the city regardless of their ability.


Vision Statement:

The City of Lethbridge is a place where people of all ages and abilities can participate in the community.

The Master Plan will guide the optimization of our physical infrastructure to allow for equal access to programs and services for ALL people, including those with physical, sensory and cognitive disabilities.

  • Master Plan in Development

    Thank you to everyone who provided us with feedback at the Community Forum on October 30 and the online discussion boards. We received a lot of great comments!

    Based on the feedback we received, we are starting to build the master plan document. The Let's Talk and Places pages on this site will still be open for comments but anything posted after January 2 may not be used to develop the final report. However, we are continually monitoring these pages and ALL comments will be forwarded to the appropriate city departments.

    As we continue with the master plan development, we will be seeking more input from our stakeholders. Drafts of the document will be posted to this site. There will also be another Community Forum in March. More details to come.

    Thank you again for your participation in this project!

    Since the Mobility/Accessibility Community Forum on October 30, we have been working with our consultants to compile your feedback.

    Although there are a number of factors that will influence certain changes to the physical environment, we are looking at some quick changes that will improve mobility and accessibility for all people, including those with physical, sensory and cognitive disabilities.

    What we heard: the timing of the pedestrian light at 6 Avenue South and 7 Street South was not long enough. Those with mobility issues would often have trouble making it across in time, posing a danger to both the pedestrian...

    What we heard: the timing of the pedestrian light at 6 Avenue South and 7 Street South was not long enough. Those with mobility issues would often have trouble making it across in time, posing a danger to both the pedestrian and vehicle traffic.

    What we’ve changed: after evaluating the intersection and use of the pedestrian light, city staff were able to increase the crossing time to better accommodate pedestrians with mobility issues. This change was implemented at 6 Street South, 7 Street South and 8 Street South for consistency along 6 Avenue South.
