La Ciudad de Goshen está colaborando con ADEC, Inc. para desarrollar el Proyecto de Sendero Sensorial de Goshen para ayudar a conectar a las personas con discapacidades con los beneficios para la salud y las maravillas de la naturaleza.

La oportunidad de obtener la subvención CCPWD es una subvención en bloque para el desarrollo comunitario que se pone a disposición debido fondos suplementarios de CDBG Coronavirus autorizados bajo la Ley CARES. OCRA ha puesto a disposición $4.9 millones en fondos.

La Ciudad y ADEC Inc. están desarrollando una aplicación habilitada para GPS a la que se accede mediante un teléfono o tableta para conectar a los usuarios con la naturaleza en una experiencia sensorial totalmente inmersiva. La aplicación ayudará a los usuarios a localizar e identificar características naturales únicas, señalar espacios interactivos donde las personas pueden participar en la experiencia sensorial y brindar oportunidades en las que los usuarios puedan aprender, relajarse e involucrar sus sentidos.

El proyecto también está agregando experiencias de la naturaleza en línea que incluyen cámaras estacionarias de naturaleza en vivo para brindar a las personas que no pueden participar en el sendero acceso a los mismos beneficios para la salud mental de las vistas y los sonidos de la naturaleza desde su hogar.
