Feedback requested for Title II ADA Transition Plan for accessibility at three performing arts facilities
Public comments are currently being collected regarding a Title II Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Transition Plan to address potential barriers to accessibility at three performing arts facilities owned by the City of Portland. There will be a public open house on January 24 from 4 to 6 p.m. with a plan overview at 5 p.m. in the Brunish Theatre, 1111 S.W. Broadway Avenue, inside the Antoinette Hall. Portlanders are asked to view the draft plan at the open house or online, then make comments that will be used to inform the final plan.
Portland’5 Centers for the Arts - the Keller Auditorium, Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall and Antoinette Hatfield Hall, are operated by Portland’5 in accordance with an agreement with Metro under the authority of the Metropolitan Exposition and Recreation Commission. As owner, the City has developed a Title II ADA Transition Plan to address potential barriers to accessibility at the Portland’5 facilities. Learn what it will take to remove identified potential barriers in the facilities and provide comments on the plan.
Please view the Draft Transition Plan online, by attending the public open house, or at either the Office of Equity and Human Rights, 421 S.W. 6th Avenue, Suite 500; Multnomah Central Library, 801 S.W. 10th Avenue, or the Antoinette Hatfield Hall’s Box Office, 1111 S.W. Broadway Avenue. Feedback is made on an online form or by downloading a comment form to send by January 31, 2017 by either postal mail or email.
