Local officials say they believe the need for more accessibility will grow in the coming years in Daviess County and Washington. 'People are getting older in Daviess County," said Cornelius.
"We've already seen private business, churches and medical facilities deal with accessibility," added Goss. "In the future more of the population will be needing these accomodations."
The plans have taken a lot of work to compile and carrying out what they have identified will require spending a lot of dollars but the people who helped assemble the plans believe they are worth it. "This isn't just for visitors it's also for employees," said Goss. "It was a major undertaking, but it was the right thing to do."
"This is the right thing to do," added Wellman. "We're ready to move forward."
