NYLPI submitted a thorough list of recommendations to the Mayor’s Office of People with Disabilities (MOPD) regarding the Mayor of the City of New York Eric Adams’ proposed Five-Year Accessibility Plan.

“While NYLPI commends the Office’s efforts to create the Plan, it must be amended to provide more meaningful opportunities for people with disabilities to participate in the Office’s programs and services. We urge the Office to consider the recommendations outlined below.”

NYLPI’s opening comments touch on the lack of concrete action steps beyond 2024, note insufficient measurable metrics to evaluate the Plan’s success, and include a request to make meetings open to the public to allow for community input, among other suggestions.
