On Wednesday, November 8 the Parks and Recreation Commission and Senior Citizens Advisory Commission will meet jointly in a work session format to receive a presentation from JQP Inc. on their work evaluating Community Services/Parks and Recreation Facilities for accessibility required under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The primary focus of JQP’s work up to this point has been to evaluate physical barriers to participation in programs and services (e.g. handicapped parking, pathway and sidewalk construction, restrooms, etc.). Future work will include meeting with staff to review readiness to serve people with disabilities from a program and service perspective.
The work session begins at 6:00 p.m. in the City Council Chambers, 401 Grove Street. Work session agenda, staff report, and draft Accessibility Evaluation report is available on the City’s web site at either http://www.ci.healdsburg.ca.us/AgendaCenter/Parks-Recreation-Commission-2 or http://www.ci.healdsburg.ca.us/AgendaCenter/Senior-Citizens-Advisory-Commission-5.
