Applications are now being accepted for the newly created accessible community task force.
The group will focus on improving the quality of life for people living with mental or physical disabilities by providing information, advice and advocacy.
“The task force is able to be more flexible than a board or commission, and so we’ve seen this and used this model with the senior task force and it’s been very successful and we felt that the advisory commission on disabilities, there’s an opportunity within that board to create a task force to assist that board and commission,” said Linda LaCloche, Communications Manager for the City of Naperville.
Seven volunteers will be appointed to the task force who will then work closely with the advisory commission on disabilities.
Applications are available at the city’s website and are due by September 30th.
