Along with a brand new year, Pasadena is celebrating the 20th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA. We’re marking the occasion by unveiling a comprehensive plan to update our public facilities to meet current ADA standards. This plan compiles projects identified by city departments and operating companies into one document, ranging from posting better signs at accessible entrances to creating an accessible shower room at Villa-Parke Community Center.
The Accessibility and Disability Commission is making final comments on the plan and seeking community input. How can we ensure public meetings are accessible to our community? How can we best accommodate people with disabilities during and after a disaster? Check out the updated plan at www.cityofpasadena.net (click on “Draft Plan-Americans with Disabilities” under FYI Pasadena) and then contact the accessibility and disability issues coordinator at 744-4782.
