The Indiana Department of Transportation is seeking applications from Indiana residents for membership in its Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Community Advisory Working Group.
INDOT seeks individuals from a broad cross-section of Indiana for its ADA Advisory Working Group, and membership is open to any individual. In particular, individuals with disabilities, disability advocates, or individuals who provide services to persons with disabilities are encouraged to apply. Members serve two-year terms and may serve two consecutive terms.
Selected working group members provide information and recommendations regarding INDOT’s ADA Transition Plan, including efforts to increase the public involvement of persons with disabilities in transportation planning. The voluntary consultative group meets quarterly at various locations throughout the state.
The ADA Transition Plan examines INDOT’s current facilities and services for artificial access barriers to persons with disabilities. INDOT uses this plan to quantify and prioritize changes that will bring its programs and practices into compliance with Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Title II of the ADA, Section 504 of the Vocational Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and all related statutes, regulations and directives.
The document is available for review in Microsoft Word and PDF format on INDOT’s website atwww.in.gov/indot/3036.htm.
