project lead StopGap Community Ramps: http://stopgapblog.blogspot.ca/p/community-ramp-project.html - automageektu

Melissa from creative spaces, from Guelph Arts Council, foundation trying to get hardware & supplies for building ramps for places with 1 step to make places accessible. Came up before, but we did not jump on it, because of liability issues. Great idea, but Guelph Arts Council does not have map-power to do project. Do ramps have to be engineered & signed off ? Hillside office took a year. Group in Toronto is doing something similar, but the city has rejected them, because the encrouch on city property and interfere with sidewalk. Habitat or Rotary Club may be better fit. We don't have mental horsepower to take it on. Diyode is not accessable itself, but we hope to make it better.
