In an effort spearheaded by Cincinnati Councilman Kevin Flynn and Mayor John Cranley, we had been working for the past year and a half with the City on employment inclusion and hiring of more people with disabilities; and building accessibility/ADA compliance and design in Cincinnati. On May 16, 2017 citizens, business and community leaders joined us in Cincinnati City Hall to support and give testimony before Cincinnati City Council members Chris Seelbach, P.G. Sittenfeld and Kevin Flynn in support of resolutions to strengthen the City’s livability for everyone.
And the votes were YES!
This is what was voted on.
YES – to expanding the CABA (Cincinnati Accessibility Board of Advisors – a board appointed by the City) to expand economic accessibility.
YES – to sending a request to City Council to develop more concrete solutions for expanding the workforce to include people with disabilities and strengthening accessibility in new and refurbished buildings in our neighborhoods.
