City kicks off plan to ensure all community members can fully navigate public spaces and activities

Community invited to attend workshop, Nov. 18

What

The City of Evanston, in partnership with Altura Solutions, aims to create a blueprint for Evanston to enhance accessibility throughout its parks, municipal facilities, sidewalks and intersections, and programs and services, according to a news release from the City. To guide the plan, the City is seeking input from the community as part of its Accessibility is Freedom: Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Transition Plan Update.

The process seeks to ensure everyone in the community can fully navigate Evanston’s public spaces and activities.

Get involved

There are a number of ways community members can participate in this process:

Public Workshop, November 18 The City will host its first public workshop on the ADA Transition Plan Update on Thursday, November 18, from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m., at the Levy Senior Center, Bobby’s Room, 300 Dodge Ave.

Community members are invited to drop in at any time to learn more about the project and help identify accessibility gaps, their most-used facilities and parks, and how to make the city more accessible for all. American Sign Language (ASL) interpretation will be available at the workshop.

Virtual Workshop and Survey, November 18 through December 2 A virtual workshop will also be available on the project website, beginning November 18.

Visitors can learn more and take a survey any time between November 18 and December 2.
