Get Involved: Better Market Street Project
Focus Group Participants Wanted
Are you a person with a disability who lives or works within the city of San Francisco?
Changes to Market Street are on the horizon and your opinion matters, when it comes to what Market Street sidewalks will look and feel like – accessibility will be a major component in any changes that are made. The Mayor’s Office On Disability has contracted with ILRCSF to convene a focus group made up of members of the public who are people with disabilities.
Focus group members will receive a $300 stipend upon completion of their participation in this important project. In order to be eligible to receive the stipend, consumers must fully participate in the entire scope of the project, which will consist of two meetings in September. The focus group will be comprised of:
- People who utilize Powerchairs
- People who utilize manual wheelchairs, either lightweight or sports-type
- People who are semi-ambulatory, utilizing walkers, canes, or other technology for mobility to move about from place to place in their daily life
- People who are blind or experience low vision
Both Focus Group meetings will consist of site visits on Market Street, in close proximity to
ILRCSF, for Focus Group members to evaluate different existing paving conditions.
This is a great opportunity to make your voice heard and be part of San Francisco’s future. Spaces on this Focus Group are limited, and will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis. Beginning today, people interested in participating in the focus group should call Peter at ILRCSF. You can click here to view/save the flyer.
