I received a letter in my mailbox about there being a community meeting in the neighborhood regarding future plans of a big land plot. I contacted the person who was responsible for the event: Jim Ballew to request an ASL interpreter. He replied quickly that they would work on getting an ASL interpreter. I didn't hear back for a few days and I wasn't sure of whether they had an interpreter or not. So I contacted him again the same day of the meeting to double check since I never received an update on the request. He said yes and it was a big relief to know that it worked out on a short moment's notice (I didn't know about the event until the letter came in my mailbox less than a week earlier). 


The meeting went well. Upon my request via email about seating, my Deaf friend and I sat in the front row so we could see our ASL interpreter clearly. I really appreciated being able to attend this meeting to be aware of what is going on in my community. 

The only advice that I would give is to please follow up with the person about ADA accommodation such as an ASL interpreter instead of the person (ex. me) having to contact them for an update to make sure that everything is worked out before coming.

Overall, it worked out pretty well and I had fun at the meeting!
