What is the Commission on Disabilities?
The Commission consists of six members appointed by the Mayor, at least three of whom shall be persons covered by the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, as amended. The members shall serve one-year terms and may be re-appointed for any number of terms.

 

It is the policy of the City of Warren to make city buildings, facilities and services accessible to all citizens. The policy may only be effectively achieved by ensuring that persons with disabilities are provided with full inclusion to the city services and buildings. The commission is created for the purpose of addressing matters within the city affecting persons with disabilities and compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, as amended.

ALL ACCESS WARREN is an initiative launched by the City of Warren and its Disability Commission to promote awareness about the benefits of accessibility for persons with disabilities.

The goal of ALL ACCESS WARREN is to collaborate with Warren-based businesses, non-profit organizations, and other establishments in Warren who share a common goal: ensuring that persons with disabilities have equal access when working, visiting, or frequenting sites in our city.

Another component of ALL ACCESS WARREN involves conducting accessibility surveys throughout the city. These surveys will be done by trained Warren high school seniors, disabled persons, seniors and other volunteers from throughout Warren. Surveys take less than a half-hour to complete, and if found to be at least 75% accessible, each surveyed site will receive a decal which can be placed inside the site or on the window. If the establishment has a website, we will also post a link to it on the Disability Commission’s web page.

This initiative will be marketed via our own Warren TV and other local media outlets.

We will also work with organizations which provide services to persons with disabilities to help get on getting the word out about ALL ACCESS WARREN. We will collaborate with the Warren Disability Commission to network with other service providers to ensure maximum public notification of the goals of ALL ACCESS WARREN.

Incentives for participation by business and other entities include:

More business;

Recognition on the City of Warren’s Disability Commission’s Web page;

A Link to business/entity/organization’s website, and A Window “Cling” left/displayed at the site, either within the site or on the site’s window acknowledging it as accessible to persons with disabilities.

Coming Soon: There will be three options for completing the assessment.

* The first is a downloadable assessment form (with instructions);

* The second option allows an establishment to complete a self-assessment and submit it on-line. All self-assessments will require an actual site confirmation visit, and

* An assessment visit can be requested and scheduled at your convenience!

For more information, please leave a message for AAW at 586.353.0575.
