Gathering input from people with disabilities about the state's transportation system is the aim of a public forum Wednesday, March 26, sponsored by DHS and the state Department of Transportation (MnDOT) as part of Minnesota's Olmstead Plan implementation. The forum will be held from 2 to 4 p.m. at the Minnesota Department of Human Services' 444 Lafayette Road building in St. Paul in Room 5137 and broadcast through videoconferencing to multiple Greater Minnesota locations and online via webstreaming.
Forum planners from DHS, MnDOT, the Metropolitan Council and the Minnesota State Council on Disability are seeking input from people with disabilities on transportation information gathered from previous studies and plans. Forum speakers also will discuss innovative transportation services provided at locations across Minnesota.
Participants are asked to register online at http://www.disability.state.mn.us/transportation/transportation-forum-registration/. Information about participating via webstreaming also is available online.
Parking information for 444 Lafayette is available on DHS' website.
