SURVEY FOR MAKING KNOXVILLE THE MOST FRIENDLY CITY FOR PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES AND SENIORS

The City of Knoxville Mayor's Council on Disability Issues (CODI) wants to make this city the most friendly for people with disabilities and seniors. The attributes that make any city friendly for people with disabilities and seniors are transportation, housing, health services, civic and social involvement, recreational and leisure facilities, environment and weather, education, and employment. All of these factors are important for a high quality of life for people with disabilities and seniors as defined by national consensus and customized for Knoxville. This disability friendly initiative is designed to assist the city's efforts to improve livability for all of its citizens. 

Please complete this survey based on what you feel would make Knoxville (or your city) the most disability friendly city. Even if you don't live in Knoxville, completing this survey will assist us to understand the factors/facilities that are important for you. Click Here for the survey.
