Parks and Recreation completes accessibility survey

Posted on: June 21st, 2018 by rhopkins No Comments

The City of Vandalia is committed to providing quality services and amenities to all people, regardless of their disability status.

Earlier this year a complaint was received that Cassel Hills Swimming Pool was not accessible to people with disabilities.

In response, the City of Vandalia engaged Patrick A. Hansford Associates to provide an Americans with Disability Act (ADA) facility survey. This is a first step towards compliance with the ADA.

The purpose of the facility survey is to identify the physical barriers that block access to areas where public services, programs and activities are provided. The survey identifies the location of the physical barriers , the severity of the barrier, identifies the priority for barrier removal as outlined by the department of Justice, and identifies simple recommendations for barrier removal.

This Self-Evaluation Plan for facility compliance and Transition Plan are available for public review and comment as originally required by the Americans with Disability Act. If you would like to review the plan, it is available during regular business hours, Monday through Friday,  8 am to 5 pm, at the Vandalia Parks and Recreation administrative offices, located at the Vandalia Recreation Center, 1111 Stonequarry Road.

Focus Vandalia shifts to weekly format

Posted on: June 7th, 2018 by rhopkins No Comments

Vandalia’s local television program is changing formats beginning in June. Focus Vandalia, formerly a monthly broadcast, has changed to a weekly format with short segmented programming. 

“We’ve been looking at this change for a while,” said Rich Hopkins, communication manager. “People’s lifestyles have changed, and fewer are devoting large chunks of time to watch a longer format show. 

Under the monthly system, most programs were 15 to 20 minutes in length.  The new programs are 3-5 minutes in length.

“The plan is to release a new program every Monday,” Hopkins said. “We feel this will help us to keep the program more timely while staying true to our mission to continually provide Vandalia citizens with information about activities and events in town.”

The June programs will feature the same program opening, but that will be updated to a fresher look in July.

All of Vandalia’s video archives are accessible on the City’s YouTube channel, which can be accessed by clicking the large blue VIDEOS button  on the City’s website homepage.
