C. Michelle Eisenberg, Student Liaison HOZHONI

Hi everyone I am updating on the Northern Arizona Community of Practice team. I don't know if anybody knows what I was elected chair of that committee for the Northern Arizona Community of Practice.
And we have not had our first meeting for the school year yet. Supposed to be today, but I had a little hiccup. So it looks like it's gonna be next Tuesday.
In our first meeting we will be talking about what our what we'll be doing for the year and then I'll be able give you more information moving forward. Well I might not but Russ might be and I'll speak to that in a minute. But we might be updating you all on what our plans are for the year and and what we're going to be working on and stuff like that. So I'm very excited about that.
And so, speaking of Russ, we did vote in our Community of Practice meeting last time that we had that Russ would be the Co liaison with myself. I guess we used to have two. So now we're back to two with me and Russ. So that way if one of us has to miss, then the other ones here, so we can keep the communication going.

Russell Randall, Youth Liasion

Congratulated Michelle on her Chair to the committee of Northern Arizona Community of Practice Team.

This committee is a part of the state community of practice transition team and and our team tries to meet to represent the needs of youth and young adults with disabilities and we meet monthly and we discuss issues relative to employment for youth.
As well as post secondary education for youth as well as housing and health needs for youth, we try to represent again youth and young adults who present with disabilities. We also met this summer and for the most part it was the steering committee of the Community practice team we met to redo our Charter. Our new Charter has not been approved yet by the entire Community practice transition team. So that would be happening at our next meeting. But thank you for for having me here today and it's nice to see you all.

9. ACTION ITEMS
             
A. Keith Becker- Discussion on Sidewalks and accessibility differently able people

Stephanie Birdwell spoke on Keith's behalf.

Yes, I I was glad to see that he had included this as an an item. I wasn't exactly sure how to approach it, but I was on a walk recently with a friend of mine who's blind and we were walking on city sidewalks around her apartment complex and.you know, every 30 to 45 yards there was a pretty major sidewalk hazard. A huge hole.This is a person who's really competent moving around the the community with their guide dog. But these kinds of of hazards are ever present and seems like there's something that could be done about them. and I see that that's what Keith seems to be, you know, suggesting that there be perhaps.some kind of place where people could maybe report situations or, you know Keith mentions in his feedback that he wants to make sure that sidewalks are safe and usable for all citizens and.
I know that some of the difficulties my friend encounters walking with her dog would be completely unpassable, for example by a person in a wheelchair. And so what is an annoyance and a potential hazard for my friend could be an actual barrier for a lot of other people.

I think that's probably all I have just for starting that out at this time.

Chairperson Jamie Martinez

Absolutely, and If I may speak to the issue myself, I know some of the things that have been an ongoing issue with with me as an individual in a wheelchair is snow and ice removal on the he sidewalks. Also, gravel can be difficult.
There are times when I'm also on foot. For those of you who may not know, I do use crutches for shorter distances, and sometimes I like to be able to walk outdoors and so gravel can pose a hindrance. Places within the city that don't affectively have adequate curb cuts or accessibility. So those are my additional issues.

Lisa Keita, stated she would look into who to report this situations to.

Russ Randell, stated he though we had one police officer that we could report to with these matters.

Moncia Attridge supplied the committee with the public works phone number to report issues.

Chairperson Jamie Martinez, I am glad Keith Becker put this on our agenda, and hopefully he will be at our next meeting to have further discussion on the topic.
