INDOT seeking members for disabilities act group

The Indiana Department of Transportation is seeking applications from Hoosiers for membership in its Americans with Disabilities Act Community Advisory Working Group.

Membership is open to any individual. Individuals with disabilities, disability advocates or individuals who provide services to anyone with disabilities are encouraged to apply.

Selected working group members provide information and recommendations regarding INDOT’s ADA Transition Plan, including efforts to increase the public involvement of persons with disabilities in transportation planning.

Members are expected to travel to six meetings around the state — one in each INDOT regional district. Applicants who prefer to represent their area may participate on a regional committee that will meet with the advisory group once each year.

Anyone interested in becoming members may submit a letter of interest or a resume by March 1 to Erin L. Hall, INDOT’s Title VI/ADA program manager, at [email protected]. Applications also may be sent via mail to 100 N. Senate Ave., Room N750, Indianapolis, IN 46204.

Potential statewide applicants are encouraged to attend the next advisory group meeting at 6 p.m. Wednesday in the upstairs conference room at INDOT’s Seymour District office, 185 Agrico Lane, Seymour. The meeting is open to the public.

Local officials representing city, town and county governments also are invited to attend and participate in advisory group meetings conducted within their regional district.
