The City of Langley is pleased to announce the establishment of the Accessibility Advisory Committee.
The Committee will assist the City in identifying, removing and preventing barriers to individuals in, or having interactions with, the City. It will provide advice and recommendations to Council to assist with the development of an organizational accessibility plan and identify barriers, issues, and areas of improvement about facilities, infrastructure and public spaces, employment, delivery of service, information and communication, transportation, and the procurement of goods/services, all of which aim to provide better support to people with disabilities. The objective of this committee is to improve the City's livability, inclusiveness, and accessibility for individuals of all ages and backgrounds with disabilities.
City Council is seeking a diverse group of volunteer members of different ages, backgrounds, and life experiences to serve on this committee. Specifically, we are looking for people with disabilities and people that support and advocate on behalf of people with disabilities. Additionally, we will select up to three members from the community at large based on their ability to meet the committee’s objectives. Langley City residents and Langley based organizations will be given preference. Should interested applicants require assistance to fill out the form, please contact Timms Community Centre reception staff at 604-514-2940 or email email@example.com and they will gladly assist.
Committee Meetings will be held monthly, and members may also host, participate in, and support community events and engagement activities to promote and raise awareness about accessibility and ensure the needs of people with disabilities are being considered.
Meetings are at Langley City Hall and may take place during regular business hours.
