Second Public Meeting Planned for Update on Americans with Disabilities Transition Plan
CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA – The City of Charlottesville and Precision Infrastructure Management (PIM) will host its second public meeting discussing the ongoing development of the ADA Transition Plan to support the City’s residents with disabilities.
“The City of Charlottesville believes that all City facilities, programs, and services should be accessible to all members of the community,” ADA Coordinator Paul Rudacille said. “While we are continuously working on improving accessibility, an updated Transition Plan will help us benchmark where we are now and develop a roadmap for where we can be in the future.”
This Transition Plan update involves a self-assessment of the City’s public rights-of-way, facilities, programs, and services.
Charlottesville residents are encouraged to attend the meeting to learn more, receive a status update on the project, and actively engage in a question-and-answer session.
“We want to get feedback from the community. We need to hear what people who are on the ground all the time have to say. We couldn't do accessibility right if we didn’t have the community engagement piece. We want to hear from you." Matthew Shapiro of Precision Infrastructure Management said.
This marks the second in a series of information sessions dedicated to this plan. The second session will be available for live-stream viewing.
WHAT: ADA Transition Plan Information Session
WHERE: CitySpace, 100 Fifth St NE, Charlottesville, VA 22902
WHEN: January 18, time to be determined
