[ARCHIVED] Commission on Disabilities to Host Public Hearing on Americans with Disabilities Act Self-Evaluation

Front Stairway

The Town of Hingham is pleased to announce that the Hingham Commission on Disabilities is hosting a public hearing to discuss the town’s draft Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Self-Evaluation and Transition Plan.

Under Title II of the ADA, the Town of Hingham is required to complete a self-evaluation of the Town’s public facilities, programs, services, activities and events to determine compliance with the ADA and identify any barriers to accessibility. 

The town launched this project with grant funding provided by the Massachusetts Office on Disability (MOD). The Town of Hingham also hired the Institute for Human Centered Design (IHCD) to assist with the self-evaluation process.

Community members are encouraged to attend the public hearing, provide feedback and ask questions. 

WHEN:  Wednesday, Sept. 27 from 7- 8:30 p.m. 

WHERE: Online via Zoom

WHAT: During the upcoming public hearing, the Institute for Human Centered Design team will summarize draft self-evaluation documents and accept public feedback.

The town currently has a draft self-evaluation and transition plan. Once the plan is finalized, the Town of Hingham will become eligible for project grant funding, through the Massachusetts Office on Disability, to implement accessibility improvements.

“This hearing provides the community another opportunity to help improve the draft ADA Self-Evaluation and Transition Plan by asking questions and providing input,”said Assistant Town Administrator for Operations Art Robert.

At a future meeting, the Hingham Select Board will accept a presentation on the project and decide whether to vote to accept the self evaluation and transition plan.
