Website Accessibility for the Charlotte County-Punta Gorda Metropolitan Planning Organization

The Charlotte County-Punta Gorda Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) is committed to ensuring digital accessibility on our website to all users, including those with disabilities. We are continually improving the user experience for everyone, and applying the relevant accessibility standards. Our goal is to provide an accessible website that conforms to World Wide Web Consortium’s Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0. Going forward, the MPO’s intention is to have NEW web content be compliant with WCAG 2.0. When we become aware of content that does not conform to the WCAG 2.0 Levels A and AA standards, we will make reasonable good faith efforts to make the content conform to the standards.

Screen Readers

To assist our website users who are visually impaired or blind, we strive to make our website compatible with screen reading software. If the user encounters a problem, please contact the MPO staff.

Word and Portable Document Format (PDF) Files

Many of the files on our website are posted as Word documents. Additionally, the MPO is working to ensure all PDFs are accessible to meet the “Safe Harbor” clause (E202.2) for legacy information and communication technology and updated Section 508 standards.
