Morgantown Accessibility Program
City of Morgantown will be updating its Accessibility Plan soon.
City of Morgantown invites and encourages any citizens willing to volunteer their time and efforts, in joining the new Accessibility Evaluation Committee. The Committee will review the previous City of Morgantown ADA Compliance Manual/ Transition Plan and will help make recommendations for updating these plans.
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was signed into law by President Bush on July 26, 1990 and provides comprehensive civil rights protection to qualified individuals with disabilities in the areas of employment, public accommodations, state and local government services and telecommunications. Title II of the ADA refers specific to State and local governments to make their programs, services, and facilities accessible to persons with disabilities.
People with a disability or an impairment are encouraged to join the ADA Committee or give their suggestions and input to the City of Morgantown during this update process by filling out an online accessibility survey.
The Accessibility Committee will be composed of two subcommittees – one will evaluate facilities accessibility and communication, and the other will be evaluating the City of Morgantown policies, programs and services. Each volunteer will be asked to join a subcommittee.
If you want to join the Committee or find more information about what the Accessibility Committee will do, or if you require any special accommodations please contact the City at: 304-284-7405. Let the City of Morgantown, know how to help. Together we can make a difference.
