Accessibility for the Disabled
The Beitar Ilit municipality sees providing accessibility for the disabled as an inseparable part of urban development.
The development of greater accessibility for the disabled and the handicapped to public sites includes: parks, educational institutions, public institutions and more. Even prior to the passing of the Accessibility Law, the municipality made all public buildings accessible to strollers, due to the large percentage of children in the city. Many playgrounds and parks in the city are accessible to strollers and to the disabled, and have been adjusted to contain any equipment used by the handicapped.
Upon the request of the mayor, all parks and passageways in the city are to undergo changes to provide more accessibility, despite the difficult layout of the city, which is situated on a mountain. Many resources have been utilized for this sake.
The municipality is currently working on expanding the accessibility for the disabled throughout the city in various places, such as sidewalks and bus-stops, 50% of which have already been built with greater accessibility.
