Making downtown more accessible for all

Did you know that Raleigh has ZERO on-street accessible parking spots? Check out this news story for the full story.

This lack of parking is one of the reasons I'm working with the Accessibility Task Force - a new group of diverse individuals that is looking holistically at the issue of accessibility in downtown.

City of Raleigh staff have done great work to pull together a draft plan to increase accessible parking spots. Now, we're seeking input from the community that will be most impacted by these changes to create the best plan possible.

If you have input or thoughts on where parking spots should go, please email me at Also, if you have experienced or heard of other accessibility challenges and would like us to consider looking into them, please let me know.
