Seattle Parks and Recreation invites input on how to better provide programs and facilities for people with disabilities

Are you or a family member a person who cares about services for people living with a disability? Seattle Parks and Recreation(SPR) wants to know how we can better support you in our programs and facilities. SPR invites the community to a focus group on Monday, March 12, 2018 from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Rainier Beach Community Center, 8825 Rainier Ave. S.

Together with Open Doors for Multicultural Families, Associated Recreation Council (ARC), the Department of Finance and the Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) we are looking for feedback on how to improve our city, systems, and programs for people with disabilities. This is an opportunity to provide input on SPR’s built environment, Specialized Programs, Aquatics Unit, Scholarships, Summer Camps and After School Care, and SDOT’s curb cuts and sidewalks.

The event is well supported to accommodate your needs. We are providing free spoken and signed language support, CART services, assistive listening devices, and refreshments. Other accommodations are available upon request before March 4, 2018 by calling the City’s ADA Title II Program at 206-684-2489.
