Parks and Recreation completes accessibility survey

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.
