Community leaders hope to hear from citizens about the transportation needs of the disabled and elderly on Thursday, May 24th at 7pm. This “Listening Session” will be held at Lake Forest High School. It is one of a series of sessions conducted by the Lake County Center for Independent Living. Findings from these sessions will be presented to PACE to help address county-wide needs.
This listening session will focus on the needs in the townships of Morraine, West Deerfield, Libertyville, Vernon Hills and Fremont. A collaborative committee of supervisors and others is currently studying special needs for transportation in those townships.
For more information about the initiative or the meeting contact Laura Mellon, Lake County Center for Independent Living, at 847-949-4440 or firstname.lastname@example.org
A similar initiative in 2010 was very successful. It resulted in the “Lake County Northwest Demonstration Dial-a-Ride Project” which provides additional transportation services for a coalition of townships including Antioch, Avon, Grant, and Lake Villa.
