Disability Rights of West Virginia

DRWV Accessiblity Studies

Article by Regina Desmond, DRWV Senior Advocate

July 26th, 2022 marked the 32nd anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)! To mark this anniversary, the ADA National Network has asked that people share moments where you were thankful for the ADA by using #ThanksToTheADA to share what the ADA means to you on social media. 

 

One of Disability Rights of WV’s Priorities and Objectives is to “complete accessibility studies when access issues are discovered by DRWV or brought to our attention.” Over the past several years, DRWV has provided technical assistance to the Monongalia County Parks & Recreation regarding updates they have made and are planning at their facilities, including, the brand-new swimming pool facility opened at Camp Muffly this summer. Below are examples of completed accessibility updates made to Mason-Dixon Historical Park and Camp Muffly.
