The following is a message from the chair of RCA’s Reston Accessibility Committee, Ken Fredgren. Congratulations to RAC for this well-deserved recognition of their hard work on behalf of people with disabilities.
The Fairfax County Department of Public Works and Environmental Services will honor Reston Accessibility Committee with its Building Safety Month Community Partnership Award. (May is Building Safety Month across the nation.)
For our service to be affirmed by these professionals is gratifying, especially considering their use of the words “safety,” “community” and “partnership.” For years RAC has been saying that accessibility improvements are needed as a safety measure, and our mission statement begins with the action verb “partnering” and includes the ideal, “community.”
The presentation will be one of the opening items on the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors meeting agenda of Tuesday, April 30, in the Government Center. The meeting begins at 9:00 AM, and we would be delighted to see you there. If you have one of RAC’s “Accessibility for All” buttons, please wear it.
