INDOT seeks members for ADA Advisory Group
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 membership from a broad cross-section of Indiana for its ADA Advisory Working Group. In particular, individuals with disabilities, or those who provide services to persons with disabilities, are encouraged to apply.
There are now two ways to participate. Statewide Advisory Group members are expected to travel to six meetings around the state - one in each INDOT regional district. Applicants who prefer to represent their area may participate on a regional committee that will meet with the Advisory Group once each year.
About the Advisory Group, Transition Plan
Selected Advisory 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. Discussion and advocacy is limited to INDOT matters including programs, pedestrian facilities in INDOT right of way, and where INDOT works with local governments.
The ADA Transition Plan outlines INDOT's policies and practices for removing barriers to accessibility in its programs and at its facilities, including pedestrian facilities in state right of way such as sidewalks, curb ramps, crosswalks and pedestrian signals. The document is available for review in Microsoft Word and PDF format on INDOT's website at www.in.gov/indot/3036.htm.
