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.
Notice is hereby given, in accordance with the Massachusetts General Laws Chapter 166 that a Public Hearing Will be held on Tuesday, June 26, 2018 at 7:15 PM in the Michael J. Gianotis meeting room ( No. 201) at the Maynard Town Building.
