The Access Board will hold a town hall meeting in Seattle on May 10 at the University of Washington. The event will feature a panel discussion on implementation of accessibility requirements at the state and local levels and another on access to public transportation, including bus and rail systems and passenger vessels. Both panels will consist of speakers from the Seattle area and will be moderated by Board members.

An open forum will follow to allow members of the public to make comments or pose questions to the Board. The Board will provide a briefing on its mission and work and an update on its rulemaking activities under the ADA and other laws. The event will take place from 1:30 to 5:00 at the University of Washington Student Union. Registration is not required. Attendees are requested to refrain from using perfume, cologne, and other fragrances for the comfort of all participants.
