Is Barnstable Accessible for Residents and Visitors with Disabilities? Town Seeks Input

Accessible parking on the west side of Barnstable Town Hall are instructed to access the building by way of an elevator on the east side of the building.With an eye toward understanding challenges residents and visitors with disabilities may face in Barnstable, the town recently completed an ADA self-evaluation study and draft transition plan. Last year, Barnstable received a $250,000 Massachusetts Office on Disability grant, which was used to hire the Institute for Human Centered Design to undertake the project. The Disability Commission was actively involved in the entire process developing the self-evaluation and transition plan. Now the town is inviting public input on the findings, which can be reviewed in detail at tinyurl.com/BarnstableADAselfevaluation.
