The Scotch Plains Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Advisory Board launched a survey today aimed to help improve access, participation, and the provision of appropriate services for those with disabilities, including people who have any type of physical, developmental, unseen disability, or mental health challenge.
Participation in this survey will help inform the ADA Advisory Board of the needs and interests of the community. We encourage Scotch Plains residents to take this survey to let the ADA Advisory Board know how the Township can be inclusive and accessible. The Mayor, Township Manager, Town Council, and the members of the ADA Advisory Board are dedicated to promoting a welcoming environment for all Scotch Plains residents, regardless of their needs. The ADA Advisory Board works to improve access, participation, and provision of appropriate services for those with disabilities in our Township.
The online survey can be found at, https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/scotchplainsadasurvey or by visiting https://www.scotchplainsnj.gov/, the Township’s Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/ScotchPlainsTwp/ and the Township's Twitter account https://twitter.com/scotchplainstwp
Hard copies of the survey can be found at Scotch Plains Town Hall, 430 Park Avenue, room 205. After completion, hard copy surveys can be submitted at a drop box in room 205.
The online version is set to only allow one submission per IP address. For those who are filling out the hard copy survey, we ask that you please adhere to the honor system and fill out only one survey.
“This survey will help us gather important information to help us make our community more inclusive and accessible,” said Township Manager, Al Mirabella who serves as the Township’s ADA compliance officer.
Councilman John Del Sordi, the Council liaison to the ADA Advisory Board added, “In our concern for the safety of our community and our residents, we want to ensure that we understand and support the safety needs of our residents with disabilities.”
If you have a disability and need assistance completing this survey, contact Margaret Heisey at 908-322-6700 ext 314 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. All responses are and will remain confidential within the ADA Advisory Board.
