Executive Order #5 (1979) requires all meetings or conferences conducted by Departments under the jurisdiction of the Governor to be held in a public or private place that is accessible to persons with a disability consistent with the Accessibility Standards prepared by the Capital Development Board unless there are compelling reasons dictating otherwise. The Order further requires that notices advise persons with a disability to promptly inform those responsible for conducting the meeting or conference of their anticipated attendance. Upon notification, meeting organizers shall provide qualified interpreter services for the hearing-impaired and shall make essential materials available in a form usable by the visually impaired as needed.
IDOT ADA Design Standards
