DSA Seeking Input from Access Stakeholders

June 9, 2017

The Division of the State Architect Access Compliance Team (DSA) and the University of California, Davis Extension Collaboration Center (UC Davis) are seeking your involvement in the design of a new consultative body, a diverse representative alliance created to provide feedback to DSA on proposed amendments to the California Building Code (CBC) regulations that affect individuals with disabilities. UC Davis will serve as a neutral facilitator to gather stakeholder input to help design the alliance. Once the alliance is formed, UC Davis will organize a kick-off workshop to provide training to support the effectiveness of the alliance in its role in DSA’s code development process.

At this time, UC Davis is soliciting information through an anonymous survey. Please take a few moments (5 – 10 minutes) to complete this survey, which can be accessed at: www.surveymonkey.com/r/DSAAccess.

Your response to the survey will be sent directly to UC Davis. Please return your survey response by June 19, 2017. Upon conclusion of the survey process, UC Davis will share a summary of the survey results and the next steps with DSA and the recipients of this email, in July 2017.

Should you have any difficulty accessing the survey, please contact ida.clair@dgs.ca.gov.

Thank you for your participation, as we take a big step forward in ushering in a new era of improved stakeholder collaboration in the code development process.
