Autism Nova Scotia will deliver a proposal to council Tuesday for the construction of an inclusive, wheelchair-friendly playground near Queens Place Emera Centre.
Catherine Rahey, a member of the group’s South Shore chapter, will deliver the presentation on behalf of the local Autism community.
Region of Queens Municipality will be asked to support the project in several ways, according to documents found in the meeting’s agenda package.
Autism Nova Scotia will request the region provide ongoing use of municipal land, grant-writing and fundraising assistance, as well as insurance, maintenance, services and utilities.
The playground would be the first of its kind on the South Shore, the group says.
The Feb. 13 meeting of council will be held in chambers at 249 White Point Rd. at 9 a.m.
