About Council Meetings
SILC meetings are open to the public. Do you have ideas about how to improve Independent Living services? Are there Independent Living services that are working especially well in your community? Do you know of new partnerships Oregon's Independent Living program should consider? If so, the SILC wants to hear from you. This announcement is to increase public awareness of independent living philosophy and activities. Please join us for the public comment period. For the specific agenda time for public input, select the appropriate meeting date below (in the Data.Oregon.gov window) and scroll to the "Public Comment Accepted" column.
All meetings are coordinated with the intent to select facilities that comply with ADA Guidelines as much as possible, balanced with the need to coordinate adequate meeting space and lodging. Accommodations, including the provision of interpreters, assistive listening devices, and materials in alternate formats are available upon request. Although every effort will be made to arrange accommodations within 48 hours notice, the SILC requests two weeks notice to insure accommodations. If you would like to receive this announcement in an alternate format, or need information about accommodations, please contact the SILC
In support of the SILC mission of inclusion, please refrain from wearing perfumes or other scents at the meetings so that people with chemical sensitivities may attend and participate comfortably.
