Committee to Advocate for Persons with Impairments
CAPI (The Committee to Advocate for Persons with Impairments) is a group of residents appointed by the Mayor with advice and consent of City Council. The function of CAPI is to advise City Council on issues and to advocate on behalf of persons with disabilities. CAPI provides the City with guidance relative to the concerns, rights, special needs and dignity of persons with disabilities to ensure their full participation in and enjoyment of the City's facilities, programs, and services.
CAPI encourages comments and suggestions from the public about issues that prevent or inhibit full use and enjoyment of any facility, service or program under the City's jurisdiction. Regular meetings are conducted on the second Wednesday of each month at 1:30 p.m. at City Hall. The public is encouraged to attend and time for public comment is provided at each meeting. You may call the Community Affairs Department at 727-893-7345 for information about meetings and accessibility issues.
In compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act, the city of St. Petersburg recently began the process of updating its ADA Self Evaluation and Transition Plan to ensure that its public facilities, services, and programs are accessible to people with disabilities.
The city has compiled a Draft ADA Self-Evaluation Transition Plan report. Public input is the most important part of this process and everyone is invited to participate from June 20 to July 5. Comments on specific recommendations for modifications to city facilities, programs, services, and activities may be submitted to:
Human Relations Dept., ATTN: ADA & Diversity Coordinator, Municipal Services Center, One Fourth Street N., St. Petersburg, FL 33701.
