A committee that advises the city on accessibility issues for Dunedin's disabled wants to hear how it can help make life easier.

Members of the Americans with Disabilities Act Advisory Committee invite the public to join them Saturday for some informal dessert and discussion at the . 

This group helped improve accessibility at the Post Office on County Road 1 a few years ago, said Joan McHale, committee member, and it is hoping to gain insight for making Dunedin's programs, services and buildings more accessible for people with disabilities.

What to expect if you go?

  • Rich La Belle, executive director of locally-based  Family Network on Disabilities, will discuss services in Dunedin, McHale said.
  • Greg Rice will explain his role as the city ADA coordinator.
  • Tom Burke, city engineer, will share recent projects and accomplishments related to ADA accessibility.

The meeting will then open to audience questions, comments and suggestions.

Interpretive services have been arranged for the hearing impaired.

Free dessert is included.
