City of Bloomington, Indiana

The Council for Community Accessibility (CCA) is a volunteer group that advocates for the interests of people with disabilities. Formerly known as the Community Council on Handicap Concerns, the group was formed in 1990. The CCA promotes awareness of the challenges faced by people with disabilities, and works to develop solutions to problems of accessibility in the community.

The CCA holds public meetings at City Hall at Showers Plaza, 401 N. Morton Street, Bloomington, Indiana. Please contact cca@bloomington.in.gov or (812) 349-3471 for details.

This is an open board and any member of the public may attend and participate at CCA meetings.

While they come from diverse backgrounds, Council for Community Accessibility members share a personal interest in accessibility issues and bring a range of leadership experiences to their work on the Council. Many members have disabilities themselves or are family members of those with disabilities. Others work in agencies that help people with disabilities. Several members have graduated from Leadership Bloomington-Monroe County and Partners in Policymaking with COVOH. Others have completed classes offered by the ADA Training Network. One member is an Indiana Civil Rights Commissioner.
