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. The public is encouraged to attend. Time for public comment is provided at each meeting. You may call the Community Affairs Department at 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. Public input is the most important part of this process and everyone can participate by completing a brief Questionnaire (only 13-items) or joining us at one of two Public Input meetings: on Tuesdays, April 28 and May 19, 6 to 8 p.m. at St. Petersburg City Hall, 175 Fifth Street North.
