US Department of Justice seeks public comment on a possible expansion of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) to address four new topics. The topics for consideration are accessible websites; captioning and video descriptions in movie theaters; accessible features for 9-1-1 and equipment; and accessible equipment and furniture. Comments are due by January 24 and may be submitted at or by mail. For more information about the new proposed ADA topics, click here.

Zoning Meeting: Philly, Seniors, Survey

Philadelphia is revamping its zoning code for the first time in 40 years. I have been working for the past year or so to try to get aging in the community features incorporated into the code. The Zoning Code Commissioners have now made certain suggestions for the new code and they are asking for community feedback. Four sections of the survey in particular will help seniors (and really people of all ages). Please fill out this survey by the end of this week. Below are four sections from the survey that will impact our consumers. Also – come to a public meeting (schedule below) if you can.
