Washington County seeks input on draft plan on accessibility of its facilities, sets open houses

 Washington County is seeking input from the public for its draft plan to support accessibility for people using its facilities, and has planned a number of open houses at which people may gain more information and offer their thoughts on the plan.

The public is invited to attend these informational open houses regarding Washington County’s rollout of its Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Transition Plan.

The open houses are set for:

• 1 to 3 p.m. Tuesday, April 7, at the Oakdale City Hall, 1584 Hadley Ave. N. in Oakdale ;

• 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 7, at the Government Center 14949 N. 62nd St. in Stillwater;

• 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 8, at the  Headwaters Service Center, 19955 Forest Lake Road N. in Forest Lake; and

• 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. Thursday, April 9, at the Cottage Grove Service Center, 13000 Ravine Parkway S. in Cottage Grove.

Residents may attend any of the gatherings. The purpose of these meetings is to introduce the transition plan to the public and begin a conversation about the county’s work thus far, and to outline how the county will continue to provide accessibility throughout the county. Comments gathered at the open houses will help identify priority areas of improvement within the county, including buildings, parks, roadways, and other county facilities.

If you need a reasonable accommodation, assistance, or for more information contact the county’s ADA Coordinator, Julie Sorrem, at 651-430-6083.
