Notice of Opportunity to Comment on Proposed 5-Year Accessibility Plan

What is being proposed and why?

Local Law 12 of 2023, codified as NYC Administrative Code § 23-1004, requires every agency to develop and implement a plan that includes the steps it is currently taking and will be taking over the next 5 years to ensure that the agency’s workplace, services, programs, and activities are accessible to and accommodating and inclusive of persons with disabilities. The accompanying plan is the Board of Correction’s proposed 5-year accessibility plan under Local Law 12. We encourage you to provide feedback that we will consider as we work to finalize the plan over the next several months.
