Public Engagement: BlindSquare Event App

Monday, September 19, 2022 - 7:45 AM

In partnership with CNIB, the City of St. John’s invites users and non-users of the BlindSquare Event application, piloted at the Downtown Pedestrian Mall this year to provide feedback on their experience.

The BlindSquare Event application is an accessible navigation and wayfinding tool designed for individuals with low vision or blindness, or any person who would benefit from a wayfinding tool to navigate an area safely.

Information collected during the public engagement process will be used to determine whether the BlindSquare Event application should be included in planning for the 2023 Downtown Pedestrian Mall, and other City-led special events in the future.

The project page is open for user feedback until September 30.
