November 24, 2015 - Mayor Andy Letham and council members recognized a tremendous accessibility advocate on Tuesday, November 24 with the presentation of the AODA (Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act) 10th Anniversary Champion Award to Norman Price.

“Given the lengthy list of his involvement as a community volunteer, nominating Mr. Price for this special award was both effortless and necessary,” said Kawartha Lakes Accessibility Coordinator Barb Condie. “Mr. Price has done so much to enhance accessibility and raise awareness both within our organization and our community. He is a tireless advocate and very deserving of this prestigious award.”

Mr. Price is currently the Chair of the Kawartha Lakes Accessibility Advisory Committee, Chair of the City's Transit Advisory Board, sits as a member of the Lindsay Parks Committee and a member of the Lindsay Downtown Revitalization Committee. Mr. Price has also been Chair of A Place Called Home.

June 13, 2015 marked the 10th anniversary of the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act and to celebrate the anniversary, the Association of Municipal Managers, Clerks and Treasurers of Ontario (AMCTO) ‘The Municipal Experts’, with the support of the Government of Ontario, launched a one-time award – the AODA 10th Anniversary Champion Award to recognize accessibility champions across the province.

This award of distinction recognizes the dedication of outstanding individuals who demonstrate leadership in accessibility, disability issues and have passion and commitment in the promotion and awareness of accessibility and inclusiveness in their community.

“Norman is an incredible member of our community and I feel very fortunate to have the opportunity to work with him and see first-hand his passion for our community and for accessibility issues,” said Ward 5 Councillor Steve Strangway. “Norman is very, very deserving of this recognition.”

As a result of his many efforts Mr. Price has earned the respect and gratitude of his committee member colleagues, the community residents as well as City Council and Staff.

“Mr. Price is an inspiration to our community and there could be no stronger advocate for accessibility issues,” said Mayor Andy Letham.
