CCA Logo small 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. Learn more...

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

Materials are available in alternative formats upon request.

CCA recently offered an ADA training workshop. Information was provided to restaurant owners, general managers, and lead personnel of local restaurants in Bloomington so that they would be able to better attract and serve people with disabilities. Restauranteurs were familiarized with the basic provisions of the ADA and the idea of self-assessments so they can make better decisions as they operate, upgrade, and/or renovate their establishments.

The Accessible Table

The first video is of ADA specialist consultant, Jennifer Skulsi, who presented on topics that included information about deficiencies that CCA surveyors have found in restroom and parking specifications.

Panel Discussion

The second video is a panel of CCA members who have disabilities. They were asked the question, "what would make you want to come back to a restaurant?"

Both videos were insightful. They are fully captioned. We hope they are of use to restaurant owners who couldn't attend, as well as for other communities.
