City Seeks Members for ADA Advisory Group

Sep 18, 2020

Would you be interested in joining the City’s ADA Advisory Group?

The City intends to form an ADA Advisory Group including local citizens who are members of the disability community or who work closely with persons with disabilities to advise City staff throughout the ADA Transition Plan process. At least 51% of the ADA Advisory Group must be made up of  individuals living with a disability as defined by the ADA including hearing impairment, intellectual disability, psychiatric disability, mobility impairment and vision impairment.

The intended goals and responsibilities of the ADA Advisory Group include:

  • Provide advice, identify accessibility barriers and recommend accessibility improvements to new and existing City programs, services and facilities as it relates to Title II of the ADA.
  • Develop relationships with other local organizations serving individuals with disabilities as identified by the ADA.
  • Support City public engagement efforts for the ADA Self-Evaluation and Transition Plan process including review of engagement tools and materials for accessibility.

ADA Advisory Group Members may also be asked to support City staff on ADA Transition Plan implementation and future Plan updates.

The ADA Advisory Group is anticipated to meet virtually on a monthly basis during the ADA Transition Plan project timeline (through March 2021) and may continue on a quarterly basis thereafter. More information is available at:

If you are interested in being a member of this ADA Advisory Group, please contact ADA Transition Plan Project Manager, Mark Freiberger, at 360-855-0771 or ( TTY: 7-1-1 or 1-800-833-6388).
