ADA Transition Plan Seeking Public Comments

In 2017, the Town received a grant from the Massachusetts Office of Disabilities to update its ADA Transition Plan. The rewrite has been drafted and it includes new provisions for enable citizens to ask for accommodations, appoints an employee as a point of contact, and outlines new physical and electronic access improvements to be implemented in the coming years.

Before submitting the plan to the Commonwealth for acceptance, public input is required.  In addition, a committee must be re-established which will inform capital planning, make budget recommendations, and assist citizens and the town in determining and establishing proper accommodations in the future. The current committee is dormant.

The draft plan is available for download on the ADA Committee page or by request at the Town Administrator’s Office.  Anyone interested in serving on the ADA Committee should also contact the Town Administrator’s Office for details.
