TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) — County and city leaders want your help in making Tippecanoe County more handicap accessible.
County Commissioner Tracy Brown and West Lafayette Mayor John Dennis have partnered to create a group called ACT.
ACT stands for Accessibility Coalition of Tippecanoe County. It’s an advocacy program to promote ADA accessibility throughout the county.
The group is holding a public meeting on Tuesday, Jul. 30 at the county building.
West Lafayette's Facilities Director and ADA Coordinator Tim Clark said they're looking to share information about the group's plan moving forward. They're also looking to address concerns and hear from the community.
“Become part of our advocacy group. Part of the ADA through the Department of Justice is to reach out to the community and find out what you have in the community,” said Clark.
They plan to tackle accessibility issues at all kinds of different locations.
“Parks, entrances to buildings, stairwells tables at restaurants, restrooms. Anything to do with accessibility for somebody that has a disability to be able to get into and make it accessible for them to be part of the community,” said Clark.
The meeting will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. at 20 North 3rd Street in Lafayette.
