How can I view accessible information for the properties (sites)?

Each property provides accessible information in two areas on the property details page. Under the Building Details section, the number of wheelchair accessible units are indicated for all sizes of units. Under the Accessiblity section, a detailed profile of various unit sizes are available.

Why do some properties (sites) appear to have many icons associated with it?

Each site is owned and maintianed by a provider. Some providers may own many townhouses/houses/apartments in a small area and they consider that 'cluster' as one site. The data within the Region's GIS system contains property data for all buildings/units associated with that site. The 'cluster' displays ALL buildings for that site to provide the applicant with an overall view of that community. When applying for housing, the applicant is applying to the site and not a specific building within that site.
