Courthouse Access Advisory Committee to Present Its Report to the Board October 30, 2006


The Courthouse Access Advisory Committee, which the Board organized to promote accessible courthouse design, will present its recommendations at the next meeting of the Board in November. The Committee’s report will provide design solutions and best practices for ensuring access to courthouses, including courtrooms, which pose unique challenges to accessibility. The Committee’s report will also address strategies for promoting this guidance through websites and on-line courses, design guides and other materials, training, and outreach.

Over the course of its two-year charter, the Committee met in different cities across the country and toured a variety of courthouses at each location to collect information upon which to base its recommendations. Its presentation, which will be open to the public, will take place November 15th at 3:00 at the Marriott at Metro Center, 775 12th Street N.W., Washington, D.C.
