Nantucket Commission on Disability
The goal of the Nantucket Commission on Disability (NCOD) is to fully integrate those with disabilities into the Nantucket community. This includes helping everyone experience the outdoor areas on the island. To aid in this mission, our team worked with NCOD to determine and communicate the accessibility at a variety of outdoor locations. We developed a methodology for assessing conservation area trails, public beaches, and public playgrounds based on published standards. Our final products included this report, a database of data from all assessed locations, a reference guide with detailed findings and recommendations to improve the accessibility at all the visited properties, and multiple webpages, one with an interactive map, that communicate current accessible locations on the island.
