On Thursday, Nov. 19, the city’s Parks and Recreation Department will hold its first community meeting to get public input on an Americans With Disabilities Act Self-Assessment System-Wide Transition Plan. The meeting, which is the first in a series, will introduce the project and timeline. In a statement to the press, Parks and Recreation Department Director Sara Hensley said, “Knowing what a vital role our public parks play within the lives of city residents, we want to make sure our parks and programs are accessible, inclusionary and welcoming for all. So we are excited to begin this process of creating a comprehensive transition accessible to all citizens.” The meeting will be held by the parks department and consulting group Altura Solutions at the Asian American Resource Center from 7 to 9 p.m.
