BRATTLEBORO—Event and meeting planners seeking wheelchair-accessible venues in Brattleboro now have an online resource.
The Brattleboro Americans with Disabilities Act Committee recently created a document, available to public and private groups, that lists places with wheelchair-accessible bathrooms and parking spots.
It is listed on the town’s official website, www.brattleboro.org, under the “Living and Learning” tab.
ADA Committee member Julie Tamler, director of The Inclusion Center, said committee members created a survey in February and sent it to schools, hospitals, churches, municipal facilities, and arts and recreation centers.
The survey asked if each venue has wheelchair-accessible space available to the community, if there are wheelchair-accessible bathrooms and parking spots and how many, how large the space is, and how much it costs to rent the space.
There are 15 venues listed on the online document, but Tamler said she hopes for more.
“We would love to have the community know about this page and add to the information as well,” Tamler said.
Business owners and community members interested in adding to the page can take the survey at www.surveymonkey.com/r/7BXXXFT.
“The ADA committee has also created posters reminding people to have accessibility on their minds when organizing outdoor events,” Tamler said.
