COLUMBUS, OHIO – The Capitol Square Review and Advisory Board will unveil a wheelchair charging station on Capitol Square Thursday, November 16, 2017. A short program to outline the program will be held in the Governor Thomas Worthington Center at 1 p.m. followed by a dedication in the Map Room of the Ohio Statehouse, where the charger is located. A second charging station will be installed in the south penthouse of Capitol Square in the near future.  

 

The funding for these charging stations came from a pilot program administered by National Association of Chronic Disease Directors (NACDD) and would not have been possible without the partnership of the Ohio Department of Health (ODH) and the Adams County Health and Wellness Coalition. Information detailing the program can be found here.

 

“The Board sees these charging stations as a way to provide a more inclusive environment for the citizens of Ohio to access their government. We are grateful for the support and leadership that the NACDD, ODH and the Adams County Health and Wellness Coalition has provided for the project,” said CSRAB Chairman, Senator Bob Peterson.
